Rather, the present collection observes how and why and whether the cinematic child is indeed aligned to concepts of modern nationhood, to concerns of the State, and to geo-political organizational themes and precepts.
Reflecting upon the shifting global geopolitical boundaries of our everyday world, it provocatively challenges, uncouples and rethinks accepted correlations between cinematic depictions of childhood and nationhood. This book will speak to anyone who was ever moved by a film about childhood to reflect on their own history, their own place within the world. Children on screen, in turn, represent processes of learning from the world.
In combining childhood, the nation and world cinema, this superb collection takes us on an enlightening journey around the world through the eyes of the child. It teaches us how nations are formed and destroyed, how they affect the world, and how the child is particularly affected as it grows up amidst conflicts, wars and disputes over borders.geylitheispos.tk

As the editors of this collection remind us, films become emotionally closer to us when there is a child protagonist, and one could add, a child's lessons on the world are closer to the truth. Covering examples from many different historical and cultural contexts, this edited volume raises ethical challenges about such representations in an intellectually rigorous manner.
This is a powerful and timely book with a truly global perspective. A much neglected area of study in the history of the cinema, the cinematic child is explored here with great insight and depth of understanding.

Childhood and Nation in Contemporary World Cinema offers an original and moving study of the power of cinema to explore ethical issues surrounding the future of the child in nations marked by war, homelessness and the search for identity. The authors explore the concept of the cinematic child from a range of national backgrounds and across a range of themes: sexuality, dispossession, war, migration, suicide, family, identity.

Through analysis of production, exhibition, distribution and reception histories, we build a polyphonal picture of a complex and contradictory transnational film culture in transformation. My research is focused on transnational concerns in a range of cultural contexts and thematic frameworks.

I am currently focused on expanding the normative framework of transnational screen studies by synergizing its concerns with ecophilosophy. As a part of this thematic expansion, I am currently working on a monograph on ecology and Nordic film cultures for Continuum, editing a special issue of Interactions on Ecology and Transnational Chinese Cinemas , and co-editing, with Tommy Gustafsson, the book collection Transnational Ecocinema: Film Culture in an Era of Ecological Transformation for Intellect.
I am also contributing articles on transnational Chinese cinema and its audiences for both collections.
