The Cultural Politics of Public Kissing in Mumbai, India (1950–2005)

Annavarapu, Sneha: “Where do all the lovers go?” – The Cultural Politics of Public Kissing in Mumbai, India (1950–2005), in: The Journal of Historical Sociology, 31.2018, S. 405-419, https://doi.org/10.1111/johs.12205

Abstract:

Public expressions of sexual intimacy have often been subject to moral censure and legal regulation in modern India. While there is literature that analyzes the cultural‐political logics of censorship and sexual illiberalism in India, the discourses of sympathy towards public displays of intimacy has not received as much critical attention. In this paper, I take the case of one representative discursive space offered by a popular English newspaper and show how the figure of the ‘kissing couple’ became an important entity in larger discussions about the state of urban development, the role of pleasure in the city, and the imagination of a “modern” Mumbai.

- Eine Welt, in der geschichtswissenschaftliche Fachzeitschriften solche Artikel veröffentlichen, kann doch nicht ganz schlecht sein, oder? Besser wäre diese Welt selbstredend, wenn solches Wissen Open Access verfügbar wäre.
