>  This collection seeks to explore how various European films and filmmakers
>  from Western and East-Central Europe as well as the Balkan states are
>  responding to the expansion of the E.U. and, more broadly, European history
>  following the collapse of communism. The collection asks: Is there a
>  totalizing or even coherent image of Europe that emerges from such films?
>  Moreover, how do we understand such films in light of the fact that one of
>  the reasons cited for the Dutch and French rejection of the E.U.
>  constitution is resistance to further European expansion, in particular the
>  entry of Turkey into Europe?
>
>
>  Papers may focus on, but are not limited to, such topics and texts as:
>
>  -- Films that address the possibilities for post-war reconciliation in the
>  former Yugoslavia
>
>   -- Representations of migration and otherness in various recent European
>  films/ cinemas
>
>  -- Films that examine the cultural impact of Islam and Muslim migration
>into
>  Europe
>
>  -- Films that question the relationship between Turkey and Europe
>
>  -- Films from the former Eastern-bloc states and the Balkans that explore
>the transition from communism to capitalism
>
>  -- Films that address the economic and social significance of shifting and
>  collapsing borders between nations
>
>  -- Omnibus films, such as Visions of Europe, or documentaries, such as Die
>  Mitte, that examine the multiple processes related to European expansion
>
>  -- Multiple films from directors such as Fatith Akin or Michael Haneke
>whose
>  work consistently engages with any of the above themes
