Mireille Rosello is Professor of French and Comparative Literary Studies at Northwestern University. Her most recent book is Declining the Stereotype: Representation and Ethnicity in French Culture.
"This timely book anticipated the wave of anti-immigrant reactions revealed by the spring elections in France and other European Union (EU) states... Postcolonial Hospitality contributes to the immigration debate and to the interpretation of contemporary culture, within France and beyond its borders." - H-France Review of Books "Rosello's analysis is rich and wide-ranging. It deepens understanding of the material she discusses and makes one eager to see the films and read the novels she analyzes." - CHOICE "...Rosello's book represents an important contribution to the fields of immigration and identity studies; it bridges the gap between the political and the literary, demonstrating not only the power of social discourse to shape cultural production, but also the power of metaphor to shape the everyday world." - Dayna Oscherwitz, Southern Methodist University
