Popular and the Public by Preben Kaarsholm
Book Description"The Popular and the Public" brings together a range of international scholars to examine how popular culture has shaped the public sphere, providing an alternative space for political debate in 19th and 20th Century India, Africa and Europe. A diverse range of case studies include: competition between Christians, Muslims and Traditionalists within public culture in Nigeria; popular music and songs of war and peace in Uganda; Battala chap-books, popular painting and battles over urban space in Calcutta; Islamic festivals and moral debates around AIDS and crime in post-apartheid South Africa; Danish orientalism; nationalist journalism in Kenya; and, notions of 'miraculous literacy' among Evangelical Christians in Africa.

The relationship between cinema and modernity in the Indian context is both complex and multifaceted. This book features essays that range from discussions of urbanity and film language to realism and the Indian city in Bengali film of the 1940s; and from the complexities of female spectatorship to an analysis of the primacy of Bollywood.
