South Asian Cultures: An Introduction

Popular culture as an academic subject provides a compelling lens to analyse a vast range of topics from family life and urbanisation to leisure and ethics. This module focuses on the different patterns of culture and their mutual exchange in South Asia, through study of a variety of media like art, theatre, TV, advertising, and cinema, in order to arrive at a general understanding of the cultural situation in contemporary South Asia, and to gain deeper insight into emerging trends and fashions.
