Lecture: "Bollywood for Who? The Politics of Hindi-Urdu Film in the Age of Globalization"

Friday, March 23 at 5 pm in NEB 202

Professor Rai will contextualize the emergence of a new form of media coming out of Bombay cinema. This media, while centered on the images, styles, and

music in Bollywood films, has broadly pursued a "global media convergence strategy"--the strategy of integrating entertainment across media platforms. Considering media clips from satellite TV,

internet resources, and film, Dr. Rai ties this emergent media convergence in India to the different strands of representation in Hindi-Urdu films that center on consumption, travel, globalization,

the diaspora, and (trans)national identity.


Amit Rai is Assistant Professor of Global literatures and film studies in the English department at FSU. He has published on a wide array of cultural phenomenon, from sexuality and the body in Gandhi, to the idea of mimicry as resistance in images of Elvis in Hindi films. His first book, /Rule of Sympathy: Sentiment, Race and Power, 1760-1860/ (St.Martins-Palgrave, 2002), is a political history of sentiment and humanitarianism in different forms of colonial power (West Indian slavery, and missionizing evangelicalism in India). His most recent articles include a new narratology of gender, sexuality and power in contemporary diasporic Asian film narratives
