Accueil d’une chercheuse Studium- Temenuga Trifonova – 2018-2019

L’équipe InTRu a le plaisir d’annoncer qu’elle accueillera tout au long de l’année 2018-2019 la chercheuse Temenuga Trifonova, associate professor à l’université de York à Toronto, spécialiste en études cinématographiques. Temenuga Trifonova est invitée dans le cadre d’un fellowship du Studium, et est plus particulièrement accueillie par Raphaële Bertho. Le programme de recherches qui a valu à Temenuga Trifonova cette invitation d’une année s’intitule “On the Ruins and Margins of European Identity in Cinema: European Identity in the Era of the Global”.


The increased mobility of large groups of people from outside and inside Europe has influenced the socio-geographical fixity of a continent of nation-states, putting in question both the concepts of ‘national identity’ and ‘European identity’. My project explores contemporary debates around the concepts of ‘Europe’ and ‘European identity’ through an examination of European films from 2000 to the present dealing with various aspects of globalization (the refugee crisis, labor migration, the resurgence of nationalism and ethnic violence, international tourism, neoliberalism, transnational commodification, post-colonialism, transnational capital etc.) in order to understand how the phenomenon—and the concept—of ‘migration’ urges us to interrogate ethical and political borders and to rethink European identity and Europe’s Enlightenment legacy in the present post-national context of ephemerality, volatility, and contingence that finds people looking for firmer markers of identity. I aim to elucidate the contradictory aspects of the figure of the migrant and the ways in which this figure challenges us to rethink core concepts such as political identity, national identity, cultural identity, European identity, European citizenship, justice, ethics, liberty, tolerance, and hospitality.
