Description

India after globalization is an increasingly mediatized society. Today, media experiences, desires, dream worlds, and fears have enveloped our time with force that was unimagined before. The blurring of the private and the public is now dramatically visible. The 'power of media' is a core explanatory category in public and academic common sense. No Limits maps the emergence of this mediatized world, and reflects on its wideranging consequences. The volume approaches this transformation of India from the prism of media studies. With essays authored by well-known scholars in the fields of cinema, television, radio, music, print, and the Internet, it presents a wide ranging and fresh perspective on our mediamodernity. From media in the colonial era to contemporary experiences after globalization, it provides a long-term, comparative perspective to the present transformations. No Limits maps new connections between old and new media, and sets up questions for addressing past and present.
