Call for Papers

Special Issue of "South Asian Popular Culture"

Bollywood Audiences (Fall/October 2005)

Special Issue Co-editors: Jigna Desai (University of
Minnesota), Rajinder Dudrah (University of
Manchester), and Amit Rai (Florida State University).

the sheer sense of security and shared joy, … the
commonality of experience despite the geographical
separation of so many thousands of miles - is second

things that bind us together as Indians, never mind
where we live.”
