Media Studies faculty David Cook and Will Dodson have been named Editors of a new Anthem Press Series on Exploitation and Industry in World Cinema. The Anthem Series on Exploitation and Industry in World Cinema incorporates a broad range of scholarship on filmmakers, genres, cycles and national cinemas, focusing on ways in which exploitation filmmaking and distribution subsidize riskier commercial or “art cinema” work. Titles in this series focus on a single exploitation filmmaker/producer/distributor, an exploitation genre/cycle or the exploitation component of a national cinema. The series considers new and fuller understandings of the interdependent development of exploitation, commercial and arthouse cinema as technology enables new cultures of audience reception.
Other UNCG faculty joining them on the Editorial Board are Jeffrey T. Adams and Kimberlianne Podlas.
