Este volumen, basado en los estudios más recientes sobre el diálogo telecinemático, se propone abrir al ámbito español la investigación lingüística sobre las series de televisión, uno de los productos culturales populares más influyentes en la sociedad contemporánea. La investigación se basa en los guiones de una exitosa serie de televisión, la serie de ficción histórica Águila Roja, producida precisamente en una época en la que se inicia la modalidad transmediática en este tipo de producciones en España. Combinando técnicas de la lingüística de corpus con el análisis del discurso, el presente estudio se centra especialmente en la construcción expresiva de los personajes principales de la serie tal como aparecen reflejados en los guiones, antes de su traslación a la realidad fílmica por parte de los actores. De este modo, el acercamiento a la creación de la ficción audiovisual se ofrece desde un punto de vista lingüístico, tanto por el tipo de materiales utilizados como por las metodologías que entran en juego a la hora de analizar los datos.

This innovative volume discusses the significance of home and global mobility in contemporary diasporic fiction written in English. Through analyses of central diasporic and migrant writers in the United Kingdom and the United States, the timely volume exposes the importance of home and its reconstruction in diasporic literature in the era of globalization and increasing transnational mobility. Through wide-ranging case studies dealing with a variety of black British and ethnic American writers, Home, Identity, and Mobility in Contemporary Diasporic Fiction shows how new identities and homes are constructed in the migrants' new homelands. The volume examines how diasporic novels inscribe hybridity and multiplicity in formerly uniform spaces and subvert traditional understandings of nation, citizenship, and history. Particular emphasis is on the ways in which diasporic fictions appropriate and transform traditional literary genres such as the Bildungsroman and the picaresque to explore the questions of migration and transformation. The authors discussed include Caryl Phillips, Jamal Mahjoub, Mike Phillips, Hari Kunzru, Kamila Shamsie, Benjamin Zephaniah, Abdulrazak Gurnah, Cynthia Kadohata, Ana Castillo, Diana Abu-Jaber, and Bharati Mukherjee. The volume is of particular interest to all scholars and students of post-colonial and ethnic literatures in English.
