About the Author:

Hamid Naficy is Associate Professor of Film and Media Studies at Rice University. He is the author of The Making of Exile Cultures: Iranian Television in Los Angeles (1993).

From Library Journal:

Home, boundaries, identity, exile?what are they? Do they refer to the body, a community, a country, a time, an artistic expression, a place on the internet? Naficy (film/media studies, Rice Univ.) presents a collection of essays examining these questions both in philosophical terms and in relation to film, music, cyberspace, and life experience. Authors from a variety of backgrounds have contributed insightful pieces ranging in tone from scholarly to personal, from John Durham Peters's examination of the concepts of exile and nomadism to Teshome H. Gabriel's touching reminiscence of a journey home. Of particular resonance is Rosa Linda Fregoso's essay on Texas border culture and its depiction in film. Other essays explore early German emigre filmmakers, the new frontiers of cyberspace, and individual struggles with body and mind. Although the book's focus is occasionally blurred by the broadness of the subject, it can also be argued that this freedom from rigid thematic restrictions has made for a more thought-provoking collection. For scholarly and academic libraries.?Carol J. Binkowski, Bloomfield, NJ
