Examining Business through Films

February 26, 2012 674

Today the Academy Awards will be telecast worldwide.

In the academic research, films and the industry surrounding them have played a role and have offered interesting insights into the business world. For today’s post, we’ve pulled together an interesting assortment of articles on movie awards; movies and marketing; power and masculinities in popular films and the use of film in re-imaging a tourism destination.

We hope you enjoy this selection.
