Migration is not new in the Southern African region. Its long history dates back to the late 19th century into the colonial, post-independence and post-Cold War eras, and into the late 1980s and early 1990s when most economies in Southern Africa underwent neoliberal economic reforms and structural adjustments. The economic reforms coincided with the end of apartheid in South Africa.

'68 + Global Cinema
Modern Languages Association - Annual Convention
Philadelphia, PA - January 5 - 8, 2017

            This call for papers is for a guaranteed session on 1968 and Global Cinema, which has been approved for sponsorship by the MLA Executive Committee on Visual Arts and Culture.

            Although scholarship exists on the late 1960s New Waves, especially on in French New Wave vis-à-vis May '68 in Paris, scholarship that puts cinemas on 1968 into dialogue with one another across national boundaries is surprisingly lacking.
