About this book

This book investigates screen representations of 21st century nationalism—arguably the most urgent and apparent phenomenon in the Western world today. The chapters explore recurrent thematic and stylistic features of 21st century western European cinema, and analyse the ways in which film responds to contemporary developments of mounting tensions and increasing hostilities to difference. The collection blends incisive sociological and historical engagement with close textual analysis of many types of screen media, including popular cinema, art-house productions, low-budget independent work, documentary and video installation. Identifying motifs of nationhood and indigeneity throughout, the contributors of this volume present important perspectives and a timely cultural response to the contemporary moment of nationalism.

About the authors

James Harvey is an independent scholar. He is the author of Jacques Rancière and the Politics of Art Cinema (forthcoming).

Reviews

“Combining conceptual sophistication with a keen appreciation of the nuances of film genres, this well-crafted collection delivers critical insight and unmatched coverage of the cinematic response to contemporary nationalism in Western Europe. It's among the most important contributions to an understanding of the resurgence of an anti-cosmopolitan governmentality.” (Michael J. Shapiro, University of Hawai'i, Mānoa, US)

“This book has its finger on the pulse of Europe, in its timely assessment of the rise of nationalism from the heart of globalisation. In penetrating analyses by a strong line-up of scholars, the collection demonstrates cinema’s continuing relevance in its power to reflect and offer critical responses to key political issues of our time.” (Lúcia Nagib, University of Reading, UK)
