Subject: Announcement for New Edited Collection: Industrial Networks and
Cinemas of India
I'd appreciate it if you could share the following book announcement.
Best, Monika

We are delighted to announce the publication of our edited collection,
Industrial Networks and Cinemas of India.

Book Description:  This volume points to the limits of models such as
regional, national, and transnational, and develops ‘network’ as a
conceptual category to study cinemas of India. Through grounded and
interdisciplinary research, it shows how film industries located in
disparate territories have not functioned as isolated units and draws
attention to the industrial traffic – of filmic material, actors,
performers, authors, technicians, genres, styles, sounds, expertise,
languages, and capital, across trans-regional contexts -- since the
inception of cinema. It excavates histories of film production,
distribution and exhibition, and their connections beyond regional and
national boundaries, and between places, industrial practices, and multiple

The chapters in this volume address a range of themes such as transgressive
female figures; networks of authors and technicians; trans-regional
production links and changing technologies, and new media geographies.  By
tracking manifold changes in the contexts of transforming media, and
inter-connections between diverse industrial nodal points, this book
expands the critical vocabulary in media and production studies and
foregrounds new methods for examining cinema.
