The Oscars: Shining a Light on the Best in Film

Today the Oscars, or Academy Awards, program for excellence in cinematic achievement will be telecast worldwide.

What does academic research have to say about global films and the industries surrounding them? Plenty, it appears. We’ve pulled together a collection of articles spanning film and television and covering such issues as: using films to teach organizational behavior; examining ethical leadership through images of Italian-American immigrant leaders; discovering the advantages and disadvantages of social capital in film and TV work; promoting destinations via film tourism, and much more. Read the articles free through March 10th.
