The Projector is developing a special issue for research articles that examine industrial and institutional developments in film, television, streaming, and/or gaming. The research, which will illuminate production and/or reception factors, could consider changes or events in the US market, national/regional sectors, or the global domain.
The political economy and/or reception studies research will not focus on interpretation or ideological assessment of an individual text. However, the research projects could effectively incorporate critical race theory, postcolonial studies, research on Hollywood hegemony, or other scholarship concerning social realities and identity politics.
