Narrating Encounter

(p.1) Introduction
Orienting Hollywood

Nitin Govil

NYU Press

This book explores the connections between Hollywood and Bombay cinema from 1913 to 2013. Drawing on the humanities and social sciences, it analyzes the contact between American and Bombay cinema by highlighting India and the United States as both real and imagined stages of encounter. By focusing on how “Hollywood” and “Bombay cinema” have been produced in the history of encounter, the book reveals the ways that media industries are created, conceptualized, and sustained over time. It also examines the multiple dimensions of the relationship between Hollywood and Bombay cinema, and especially how American cinema and the Indian film industry have come into contact.

Keywords:   media industries, Hollywood, Bombay cinema, India, United States, Indian film industry, American cinema
