“The book [offers] an interesting and potentially useful resource for scholars and students working at the intersection of cultural studies and migration research.” • Ethnic and Racial Studies
The 21st century has witnessed some of the largest human migrations in history. Europe in particular has seen a major influx of refugees, redefining notions of borders and national identity. This interdisciplinary volume brings together leading international scholars of migration from perspectives as varied as literature, linguistics, area and cultural studies, media and communication, visual arts, and film studies. Together, they offer innovative interpretations of migrants and contemporary migration to Europe, enriching today’s political and media landscape, and engaging with the ongoing debate on forced mobility and rights of both extra-European migrants and European citizens.
Nelson González Ortega (1952-2022) was Professor of Hispanic Literatures at the University of Oslo. He previously taught at University of Santo Tomás, University of Nariño, and Umeå University.
Ana Belén Martínez García is Associate Professor at ISSA School of Applied Management, University of Navarra. Her work has appeared in publications including Journal of Writing in Creative Practice, and Life Writing.
