*_Aims & Scope:_*

Studies in South Asian Film and Media (SAFM) is committed to looking at the media and cinemas of the Indian subcontinent in their social, political, economic, historical, and increasingly globalized and diasporic contexts. The journal will evaluate these topics in relation to class, caste, gender, race, sexuality, and ideology.

The last few decades have witnessed South Asian cinema and media emerging as significant areas of academic inquiry. The journal is dedicated to building a space for a critical and interdisciplinary engagement with issues, themes and realities of cinema and media theory. The scope of the journal will incorporate the concerns of scholars, students, activists and media practitioners.

In this era of global communication, when the all-pervasive presence of media is no more in question, an intense debate concerning its political, ideological, and cultural impact has led to a highly complex and rapidly evolving field of inquiry.

We invite contributions from scholars, researchers and practitioners of South Asian film and media. Possible areas include but are not limited to:

  * Film and Media as social history.
  * Feminist analysis and theory in film/media studies and practice
  * Class, caste, and sexuality: The politics of subalterneity and
    marginalization in film/media studies.
  * Contemporary media/ documentary and the public sphere. Interviews
    with documentary film makers.
  * Global media consumer culture and labor in the cultural industries.
  * News, citizenship, democracy, and the neo-liberal restructuring of
    media industry.
  * Nationalism and Regional cinema in the context of neo-liberalism.
  * Globalization/Diaspora/ South Asian representation.
  * Cinema and the other arts.
  * Contemporary arts practices, cinema, and visual culture.


Articles should be between 6,000 – 8,000 words in length. Please note that articles should be original and not be under consideration by any other publication.

SAFM also welcomes shorter pieces that are either creative or analytical, (between 1,000 – 4,000 words), as well as visual material.

All initial enquires should be sent to the editors (ataaj.safm /at/ <mailto:(aaj.safm /at/>
