Nation Misplaced: Film, Time and Space in South Asian Decolonization

Nandini Bhattacharya
Taylor and Francis Online

Abstract: Histories and aesthetics of space intersected in South Asian decolonization. The contest for space has continued to be reflected in South Asian cinema from the 1950s to the present. Spatial politics and the aestheticization of spaces both reflect current politics and urban policies and also glance back at colonial and postcolonial histories of national fragmentation and nation-formation.
