Guest edited by Frances Gateward and David Desser

A recent spate of books has introduced the popular Hindi cinema to
English-speaking, academic audiences, studies long overdue considering
the wide popularity of these films in South Asia, Africa, Europe.. and
among the widely dispersed Indian diaspora.  These studies have taken a
"macro" view of the topic, dealing with issues of national identity,
gender, sexuality, stardom and transnationality.  For a special issue of
Post Script, we would like to explore issues in a more focused way, in
particular, examinations of commercial cinemas of the varied language
groups, industry studies and transnational reception, remakes across
language groups, genre, and music.

Completed essays of 4,000-6,000 words, in MLA format will be due August
1, 2005.
