About this item

Children and Media in Indiailluminates the experiences, practices and contexts in which children and young people in diverse locations across India encounter, make, or make meaning from media. The book brings together original qualitative data in urban, small-town and rural contexts in key regions of India. It considers diverse young people’s and children’s accounts as a means of interrogating widely held assumptions about links between sociocultural identities, new technologies, development and democracy. From textbooks and comics to mobile phones and digital games, it provides a critical analysis of the types of media available to different socioeconomic groups of children in India and their articulation with everyday life and culture. In so doing, it offers a fresh perspective on techno-centric accounts of development, civic participation, new media and global childhood.
