New Directions in National Cinemas

New Directions in National Cinemas aims to publish manuscripts that take new and exciting approaches to the study of individual and comparative national cinemas, moving beyond their "national character" to explore their trans-national, international, regional and global dimensions. The series seeks to publish books that are interdisciplinary in nature but are strongly conversant in film theory and criticism. The series welcomes studies that explore stardom and nation, genre and nation, and memory and cinema; studies of class, gender and cinematic representations of the national; and diasporic and cross-national perspectives. We are especially interested in projects aimed at a broader audience, academic and mainstream, than traditional film monographs. Inquiries and submissions may be sent to series editor Robert Rushing at You may also contact Acquisitions Editor Janice Frisch at
