John Cabot University Professor Tijana Mamula has been published in the current issue of Screen, the leading international journal of academic film and television studies. Her essay, titled ‘Metaphorically seeing: the place names of Marguerite Duras’, explores the “use of sound–image disjunction in Marguerite Duras’ India Song (1975) in relation to migration, bilingualism and cinema’s metaphoric potential.”

Her primary research is focused on the relationship between cinema and language, particularly as it pertains to transnational cinema and film theory.
