New Directions in National Cinemas aims to publish manuscripts that take new and exciting approaches to the study of individual and comparative national cinemas. 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 the intersection between 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 (for instance, Asian and Asian-American). 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 editors Jacqueline Reich at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also contact IU Press Sponsoring Editor Raina Polivka at email@example.com.
