«  » »Description:After the epochal turn of 1989 a new wave of movies dealing with the complex entanglement of religious and national identity has emerged in the eastern part of Europe. There has been plenty of evidence for a return of nationalism, while the predicated «  »return of religion(s) » » is envisaged on a larger scale as a global phenomenon. The book suggests that in the wake of the historical turns of 1989, an «  »iconic turn » » has taken place in Eastern Europe in the form of a renewed cinematic commitment to make sense of the world in religious and/or national terms. «  »Iconic Turns » » combines theoretical articles on the subject with case studies, bringing together researchers from different national backgrounds and disciplines, such as history, literary and film studies. Contributors include: Eva Binder, Jan ulk, Liliya Berezhnaya, Christian Schmitt, Hans-Joachim Schlegel, Maren Rger, Mirosaw Przylipiak, Stephen Norris, John-Paul Himka, Maria Falina, and Natascha Drubek. » » »
