The contexts of spatiality and materiality are often explored by sociologists, geographers, urban studies specialists, philosophers, performing/fine arts scholars as well as anthropologists and communication researchers. This book is comprehensive in its engagements with three locations—spatiality, materiality and communication, in the context of South India. The book takes a multidisciplinary approach to communication and media studies and drawing on the knowledge seeking spirit of ancient philosophers of South India, its universe is an expansive one.
The spatial and material dimensions of communication have changed dramatically over the past two millennia in South India. The historical and contemporary trajectories of these changes are revealed, explored, documented, critiqued and examined in this multifaceted work.
Across four sections on historical trajectories, everyday lives, public communication and media materialities, its 20 chapters on diverse topics offer unique coverage of the spatial journeys of people, rulers, philosophers, men, women, their material objects, occupations and media during the past two millennia in South India.
