«The Reimagined Community» is a comparative study of European cinema and the political shift from national traditions to transnational cooperation. The European peace project is reactivated with a fresh analysis of film cultures as critical history lessons. Nationalism emerged in a close interplay with print media after the Reformation. Today, the movies have become a primary source to explore the postnationalist turn. «The Reimagined Community» replaces narrow specialization with a historical kaleidoscope of culture bound syndromes, changing gender systems, and ethnic conflict fields.
