Transnational as Method: Locating Indian Cine-Practice beyond India

12. January 2024 / 10:00 12:00

ConTrust Research seminar „India as Method: Challenges and Perspectives in the Study of Media and Politics in Contemporary South Asia“

With Parichay Patra

This presentation raises the issue of realizing the potential of transnational cinema as method in the context of India, taking it beyond the usual framework of exhibition and reception. It wants to show how the transnational movements of film aesthetics, politics and ideologies create underexplored alliances and networks that place Indian cinema within the larger domain of the Global South, contradicting the narrative of exceptionalism that always plagued cinema studies in India.

Parichay Patra is an Assistant Professor at the School of Liberal Arts, Indian Institute of Technology Jodhpur, India. His areas of interest include transnational cinema, global south cinemas, Indian and other new waves of the long 1960s.
