About CinéNation

CinéNation is an independent, non-partisan, research project the aim of which is to support scholarly research in the field of Film Studies, focusing on the way National Identity is represented in Cinema. The first three case studies which are presented here (on the Armenians, the Kurds, and the Palestinians) were the subject of a PhD thesis authored by Tim Kennedy, from the Department of Film, Theatre, and Television Studies, at the University of Reading, U.K.

This web site is a continuation of that research, independent of the University, that aims to broaden and deepen the findings of the original study, and to present materials in a way that is useful to other scholars in the field.
