Reviews

“Dislocated Screen Memory: Narrating Trauma in Post-Yugoslav Cinema (Palgrave 2016) is the first study that thematically gathers twenty-odd years of Balkan cinematography by giving an analytic voice to highly complex and sophisticated webs of traumatic representation. … The importance of the book lies not only in its fresh insights on the dominant tropes of representation that emerged in post-Yugoslav films … but also in its approach to trauma. … brings much needed attention to marginalized themes and marginalized films.” (Dragana Obradovic, Balkanist, balkanist.net, May, 2016)

"Dislocated Screen Memory is a welcome addition to the growing literature on post-conflict cinema. Focusing on films from the countries of ex-Yugoslavia, the book deftly and delicately explores much contested affective and political terrain, making the reader see how the traumatic aftermath of a civil war all too easily blurs distinction between victims and perpetrators, as each side lays claim to victimhood. At once erudite and empathetic, the book makes an excellent case for the cinema as a factor for truth and an agent of testimony." - Thomas Elsaesser, author of German Cinema - Terror and Trauma: Cultural Memory Since 1945
