Genre in Asian Film and Television takes a dynamic approach to the study of Asian screen media previously under-represented in academic writing. It combines historical overviews of developments within national contexts with detailed case studies on the use of generic conventions and genre hybridity in contemporary films and television programmes.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'By studying screen genres in tandem with Asian cultures, this collection provides wide-ranging views of the mediatized discursive formations taking shape around a major geopolitical nexus. A richly informed and informative contribution.'

- Rey Chow, Duke University, USA

'This is a welcome, necessary and indeed long-overdue collection on Asian film and television, conceived on the basis of the highly original genres they either generated or creatively remodelled. The impressive array of specialised contributors, as well as the detailed textual and contextual analyses they undertake at each chapter, invariably stand out for their unique insights and sovereign independence from the usual paradigms provided by Western genres. This will be required reading for anyone interested in Asia and its formidable audiovisual output.'

- Lucia Nagib, Centenary Professor of World Cinemas, University of Leeds, UK

'Genre in Asian Film and Television shows that there is still a need for this kind of study by demonstrating ways in which multiple Asian cinemas can be discussed collectively without losing sight of cultural specificity.' - Frames Cinema Journal
