Reimagining North African immigration

Identities in flux in French literature, television and film

First Edition

Patrick Saveau and Veronique Machelidon

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Explores the broad richness of film and literature by post-beur authors who articulate new ways of living, being, and creating in France and in the world
  • Provides a much-needed vocabulary for rethinking the intergenerational legacy of trans-Mediterranean immigrants
  • Deflates alarmist views on the postcolonial fractures running through French society, arguing that descendants of trans-Mediterranean immigrants are poised to bridge cultural differences and offer new modalities of Frenchness
  • Offers a critical and theoretical framework affirming the crucial place of 'post-beur' literature and cinema within contemporary mainstream French culture
