I am pleased to announce the publication of two encyclopedia entries on the topics of "Taiwan Cinema" and "Taiwan Literature" in a volume just released:
Pop Culture in Asia and Oceania, edited by Jeremy A. Murray and Kathleen M. Nadeau.
A link to the website is located here.
As stated on the publisher ABC-CLIO's website:
"This entertaining introduction to Asian pop culture covers the global superstars, music idols, blockbuster films, and current trends—from the eclectic to the underground—of East Asia and South Asia, including China, Japan, Korea, India, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, and Pakistan, as well as Oceania. The rich content features an exploration of the politics and personalities of Bollywood, a look at how baseball became a huge phenomenon in Taiwan and Japan, the ways in which censorship affects social media use in these regions, and the influence of the United States on the movies, music, and Internet in Asia."
