Changes in communication technologies are transforming our social environment. In India, ‘media convergence’ has brought together older (mainstream) media and newer (digital) media, making India one of the most mediatised societies in the world.
Media’s Shifting Terrain explores the social and political impacts of this media convergence between 2011 and 2015, through a study of five media-driven mobilisations that transformed India’s public culture.
These mobilisations made effective use of multiple media platforms and, taken together, constitute a turning point in the mediatisation of the country, its society and politics.
