Polyglot Cinema brings together a diverse group of scholars from Europe,
Canada and the USA, resulting in a dynamic account of plurilingual migrant
narratives in contemporary films from France, Italy, Portugal and Spain.
In addition to the close analysis of key films, the essays cover theories
of translation and language use as well as central paradigms of cultural
studies, especially those of locality, globality and post-colonialism. The
volume marks a transdisciplinary contribution to the question of cultural
representation within film studies.

co-published with Mercè Saumell Escenarios compartidos: Cine y teatro en
