Product Description

South Asian Ways of Seeing: Contemporary Visual Cultures brings together eminent as well as new scholarly voices from across disciplines to explore South Asia from a visual standpoint, exploring multiple mediums and multiple ways of seeing, including tarot, film, graphic novels, painting, death pictures, graffiti, and installation art. With an intent to establish conversations between and across disciplines like history, sociology, literature, art history, culture and media studies, the discursivity of visual cultures in framing a South Asian imaginary is attempted. Attention to the production, circulation and consumption of visuals, which recognizes their embeddedness in material and cultural practices, is combined with an in-depth analysis of form, technique and the afterlife of less-examined media/genres. Through this wide-ranging exploration, we ask the compelling question: Is there a South Asian way of seeing?
