This volume provides an overview of popular culture and examines in particular how it represents, influences and even reinvents Indian society. Each chapter outlines key theoretical insights from various fields of study—such as Marxism, gender, sexuality, postcolonialism, postmodernism—and demonstrates how they may be used to understand the ever-expanding domain of popular culture. Examples from global culture as well as contemporary India have been used to further enrich this survey. Popular Culture has thus been prepared to enable Indian students and scholars to comprehensively analyse diverse forms and representations of popular culture from varying theoretical perspectives.
