Imagining Migration in Film and Literature

What role should the arts play in debates about transnational migration, one of the principal factors re-shaping community and communication today? What difference can

artists make? Focusing on literature and film from the late 20th and early 21st centuries, with primary examples drawn from Germany, France and the United States—in relation to Turkey, Hungary, Tunisia, Iran, Nigeria, China, Mexico, and Japan—this course explores how creative arts rework the fabric of social life affected by migration.
