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 sense of belonging that Bollywood films foster -
the sheer sense of security and shared joy, … the
commonality of experience despite the geographical
separation of so many thousands of miles - is second
to none. It works more because Bollywood is one of the
things that bind us together as Indians, never mind
where we live.”
