Media, Modernity and Technology: The Geography of the New, 1st Edition (Paperback) - Routledge

They share an adaptability, an emptiness even, that bears the old advantage of form over content as theirs much exceeds the variability of single modern achievements such as democracy or enlightenment or the idea of social justice. Media modernity need neither be democratic nor enlightened nor just see Alexander , Azoulay , Butler , Sontag All the while, the poor and the disadvantaged neither go away nor become less, smartphone in hand or not, and information and communication technology pans out as much to support their democratic citizenship rights as to attack and even erase them.

One of the early theorists of post-industrialism, Beck saw modernity entering a stage of self-reflex- ion, i. Not quite able to transcend a Habermasian concept of the public, on the other hand, Beck could not conceive of media, both in terms of hard- and software, becoming included in such self-reflexive re-distribution El- lis , Cottle The media themselves have thus become the space and the resource within which and with the help of which antagonistic scenarios are being contested.

These authors live and work, like so many of us, often temporarily at different junctures of the now often precario- us global-local connect — Singapore, New Delhi, London, Mumbai — thereby also embodying the ambivalences of the modernity they examine and on whose medi- atized character they offer here a small but powerful glimpse. As we have tried to indicate with our little retrospection above, a critical di- mension in the understanding of media modernity is its history.

Remarkably, this has often become sidelined in the compulsive focus of most current media research on the ever latest technological developments. Khan, meanwhile, argues that the long-pending issue of media autonomy has been topped by the ambiva- lences of individual anonymity, both in terms of evading government surveil- lance and of engaging in online aggression. He argues that emerging digital media activism has an important role to play in closing a historical gap between policy- and technology-expertise on the one hand and critical political culture on the other.

In a variation of this logic, the press that Amanullah critically engages with was willing, under the directed influence of the Sunni ulama religious leadership , to use a langu- age — Urdu — that has increasingly been reduced to be the tongue of the Muslim minority, against the public efforts of an even further marginalized denomination within Islam, the Ahmadis. In a more concealed fashion, we find the dimension of caste also where South Asia scholarship still too rarely even suspects it, namely amongst the readers of the Urdu press, i. From a very different angle, Narrain equally breaches the conventional and homogenising angle on Hindu majority-Muslim minority, without denying its centrality in the current political scenario.

Similarly, Khan elaborates on the shifting formations of digital activist groups in correspondence with evolving technologies and policies. Completing this geographical spread, Amanullah and Khan focus, implicitly and explicitly, on North India. Together, while leveraging a spectrum of empirical settings and analytical standpoints, the contributions to this thematic section underline the intrinsic connection between modernity and media and demonstrate the genealogy of me- dia modernity as an open concept, a permanent interplay, and a lived ambivalent reality.

Its further critical exploration, it is to be hoped, will open ever more av- enues leading away from the often unquestioned authority of modernity over both communication policy and media studies in India and beyond. Thanks also to the anonymous reviewers of all contributions.
