Special Issue: Hindutva Politics and South Asian Cinema

_Aims & Scope_

Studies in South Asian Film & Media hopes to build a space for critical media theory and practice, engage scholars, activists and media practitioners in dialogue, clarify the relationship between culture and politics, and highlight South Asia as a vantage point from where the contemporary integration of the globe may be understood. Analytical and theoretical perspectives that are critical, interdisciplinary and global, and which combine an awareness of of aesthetics with insights from the humanities and social sciences to explain how subjectivities and publics are produced in specific historical contexts, are especially welcome.
