Scripting indianness: Remediating narratives of diasporic affiliation and authenticity

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The materiality of diasporic experience is embedded within overlapping geographies and processes that are increasingly mediated. This chapter examines how scripts of authentic Indianness mobilized by different constituencies travel across media platforms and politics, strategically linking and delinking the diasporic to the nations of residence and origin. The chapter discusses how diasporic national affiliations are defined, transformed, and remediated within global assemblages of capital, media, publicity, and nationalist ideologies.
