This roundtable addresses the transcultural nature of Indian cinema, both past and present. Following the liberalization of India's economy in the early 1990s, histories of Indian cinema have either focused on the reception of Indian films vis-a-vis cosmopolitan constructions of South Asian diasporic subjectivities or have examined the ways in which an image of the nation has been constructed in and through Indian cinema. What is less understood and explored is the integration, consumption, and vernacularization of Indian cinema in various contexts outside India, for instance in Latin America and Africa. Cinephiles, Fandoms, and Global Media Cultures aims to highlight recent engagements with transcultural Indian cinema.
