Over fifty years after Algerian independence from France, Franco-Algerian relationships and the complexities of the colonial legacy remain a key concern for many citizens in both countries. In Contesting Views, Edward Welch and Joseph McGonagle explore the significant role visual culture has had in mitigating this fraught relationship. They trace the circulation of and connections between a diverse range of still and moving images from both sides of the Mediterranean, offering a new understanding of the postcolonial experience in Europe and North Africa and wider contemporary geopolitics as they play out in visual culture. 
Joseph McGonagle is a lecturer in francophone cultural studies at the University of Manchester. 

Edward Welch is a senior lecturer in French at Durham University. He is the author of François Mauriac: The Making of an Intellectual
