BOLLYWOOD AND ITS OTHER(S): TOWARDS NEW CONFIGURATIONS. Ed. by Vikrant Kishore et al. Palgrave Macmillan, St. Martin's Press, Inc., New York, 2014. 242 pp. 23 x 15 cm. LC 2014-22070 ISBN 9781137426499 In English.
Publisher's description: How do we define the globalized cinema and media cultures of Bollywood in an age when it has become part of the cultural diplomacy of an emerging superpower? Is it still an 'other' industry in a world dominated by Hollywood? Bollywood and Its Other(s) aims to compensate for the lack of scholarly literature on Indian film by opening up hitherto unexplored sites or sites that are in formation. It focuses on the aesthetic-philosophical questions of the other, Indian diaspora's negotiations with national identity, alternative reading strategies/research methods, marginal genres (sci-fi, horror), marginal characters (flaneuse, vamps), marginal gender (non-normative sexualities), marginal cinema (Hindi avant-garde), marginal language (Hinglish), and marginal regions (the Kashmir valley). It intends to address film scholars, South Asian studies researchers, cinephiles and lay readers alike.
