The family remains a fundamental social, emotional, and economic unit, but it is undergoing change, especially in the European Union. Reimagining the Family explores contemporary films and literature about the effects of legal and illegal immigrationMoreThe family remains a fundamental social, emotional, and economic unit, but it is undergoing change, especially in the European Union. Reimagining the Family explores contemporary films and literature about the effects of legal and illegal immigration on the structure and the stories of the contemporary European family, with a focus on Germany.

Multiple models, from nuclear to extended, local to transnational, encounter each other in statistics and in fictions. Narratives about work, love, generational difference, and conflicts among them alternately resist and embrace the influences of migration and immigration. Defining cosmopolitan identities in new and more inclusive ways, these stories of transnational families go beyond the demographic studies to expand the range of possibilities for understanding work, parenting, and citizenship in contemporary Europe.
