David Murphy (University of Stirling, UK) examines the work of French-speaking African filmmakers, who stand at the junction of transnational cultural, political and economic forces spanning local and global dimensions.

David Murphy is author of Sembene: Imagining Alternatives in Film and Fiction (Oxford: James Currey, 2000) and co-author of Postcolonial African Cinema: Ten Directors (Manchester: Manchester University Press, 2007). He is also co-editor of several collections of essays, including Francophone Postcolonial Studies: A Critical Introduction (London: Arnold, 2003); Postcolonial Thought in the French-Speaking World (Liverpool: Liverpool University Press, 2009) and Comparing Postcolonial Diasporas (Basingstoke: Palgrave, 2009).
