Dr. Shekhar Deshpande, professor of Media and Communication, and Dr. Meta Mazaj ’97 were named as Routledge Featured Authors for their recent book, World Cinema: A Critical Introduction.
World Cinema, published by Routledge, offers a critical perspective on cinematic industries around the world. Routledge is a multinational academic publisher that specializes in works relating to the fields of Humanities and Social Sciences.
The article notes: “Authors Deshpande and Mazaj have developed a method of charting this new world cinema that makes room for divergent perspectives, traditions, and positions, while also revealing their interconnectedness and relationships of meaning. In doing so, they bring together a broad range of issues and examples—theoretical concepts, viewing and production practices, film festivals, large industries such as Nollywood and Bollywood, and smaller and emerging film cultures—into a systemic yet flexible map of world cinema.”
