Woman as Spectator and Spectacle: Essays on Women and Media

K Durga Bhavani (Editor) C Vijayasree (Editor)

Woman as Spectator and Spectacle: Essays on Women and Media brings together several critical readings on the correlations between media and women’s issues. Based on the papers presented at a National Seminar on ‘Women in/and Media’ conducted at Osmania University, Hyderabad, this volume deals with issues ranging from the portrayal of women in media to the need for a definitive gender policy for the media.

The volume explores the role of women both as objects of media representations as well as the producers and consumers of it. The articles interweave the regional and linguistic reading of media texts with global feminist media criticism. Through this, the ramifications of media globalization on women’s issues are analyzed, thus giving voice to specific local developments and their impact on women and media.
