CFP: Bollywood Film Remakes (Rashna Wadia Richards and Lucia Krämer eds.)

The collection is tentatively titled Bollywood Film Remakes, but we see Bollywood as a phase within the longer arc of Hindi cinema. Therefore, we encourage contributions about remakes in Hindi-language cinema before the Bollywood era as well. Case studies are welcome as long as they illustrate larger trends.

We are in communication with the editors of the Screen Serialities series at Edinburgh University Press for this collection. Please email a 500-word abstract and a brief biographical note to Rashna Wadia Richards ( and Lucia Krämer ( by April 30, 2023. The co-editors will respond to all abstracts by May 31, 2023. Completed chapters (7,000-7,500 words) will be due by May 31, 2024.
