This concluding chapter explains how studies of “transnational” German, Japanese, or Brazilian literatures or cinemas create for themselves a conundrum that cannot be properly studied: if it is transnational, it cannot be assessed within national parameters. To recognize the relationship of the cinematic apparatus to the current social configuration unfolding in Europe and beyond, this book has necessitated a broad comparative and historical approach. At the same time, to invoke the term transnational here is itself misleading. The book set out to correct and revise the research on transnationalism by rejecting the neo-Hegelian assumption that informs much of the work on transnationalism in Europe.
