Description - The Politics of Belonging in Contemporary India: Anxiety and Intimacy by Kaustav Chakraborty

This volume looks at the emerging forms of intimacies in contemporary India. Drawing on rigorous academic research and pop culture phenomena, the volume:

  • Brings together themes of nationhood, motherhood, disability, masculinity, ethnicity, kinship, and sexuality, and attempts to understand them within a more complex web of issues related to space, social justice, marginality, and communication;

  • Focuses on the struggles for intimacy by the disabled, queer, Dalit, and other subalterns, as well as people with non-human intimacies, to propose an alternative theory of the politics of belonging;

  • Explores the role of social and new media in understanding and negotiating intimacies and anxieties.

Comprehensive and thought-provoking, this book will be useful to scholars and researchers of political studies, sociology, sexuality and gender studies, women's studies, cultural studies, and minority studies.
