Is it scholarly?
Here are some clues to look for in the catalog record when you are evaluating whether a book is scholarly or popular:
- The publisher is either a university press or an academic publisher (such as Routledge, Wiley, Blackwell, etc.).
- The description of the book includes "notes and references."
When you have the book in hand, and still aren't sure if it is scholarly, you might want to do a little more digging, perhaps with a couple of quick Google searches:
- Who is the author? What are the author's credentials or other sources of expertise?
- Does the publisher have a website? If so, what types of books does it publish and what is the process for submitting work for consideration?
Global Bollywood by
Call Number: HM851 .D4325 2016 v. 1-2 Print Books
Publication Date: 2008-08-01
Bollywood is one of the most prolific film industries in the world. Based in Mumbai (formerly Bombay), the industry churns out hundreds of films each year--primarily melodramatic films with music and elaborately choreographed dance routines. Bollywood's popularity is quickly spreading across the globe, and, beyond the films themselves, Bollywood has made its way into global popular culture. Global Bollywood brings together leading scholars to examine the transnational and transmedia terrain of Bollywood. Defining Bollywood as an arena of public culture distinct from Hindi-language Bombay cinema, this volume offers a new critical framework for analyzing the institutional, cultural, and political dimensions of Bollywood films and film music as they begin to constitute an important circuit of global flows in the twenty-first century. Organized thematically, the book examines contestations surrounding the term "Bollywood," changing relations between the state and the film industry, convergence with television and new media, online fan culture, film journalism, and the reception and negotiations of gender and sexuality in diverse socio-cultural contexts. Global Bollywood is indispensable for understanding not only Bollywood cinema and culture but also how global media flows are reconfiguring relationships among geography, cultural production, and cultural identity.
