Border Representations in Literature and Film

Drew Paul

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Analyses both literature and film, in Arabic and Hebrew
  • Examines the cultural impact of expanding border spaces (checkpoints and walls) in the post-Oslo period
  • Considers how border spaces have affected both form and genre
  • Argues that literary and filmic engagement with borders reveals their deceptive qualities and contests their power
