Enterprise Hindutva: Five Prototypes in Urban India
December 1, 2017 - 10:15-12:00
The expansion of social media in India has marked a distinct debate culture among the middle classes, shaping a new milieu of ideological affiliations. Amidst a diversity of online voices, social networking sites are active with an alert and assertive group of Hindu nationalist sympathizers whom I call the “ideological warriors of New India”. This talk delineates the new media cultures surrounding this ideological group, and the varied motivations that cluster around the enthusiasm to announce the arrival of the confident “right-wingers”.
