Johnston C (2015) Tehran, Vienna, Paris: The Cultural Geographies of Persepolis. In: Barta P & Powrie P (eds.) Bicultural Literature and Film in French and English. Routledge Studies in Comparative Literature, 1. New York and London: Routledge, pp. 105-118.

Analysis of questions related to late 20th-century urban geographies (the onscreen depiction of bodies - both individual and collective, and, crucially, female - as socially significant spaces; and an individual experience of exile and its in-between spaces) as they emerge in Marjane Satrapi's film Persepolis.
