Course programme

This course is designed to give young entrants into journalism a sense of the history and characteristics of the news media in India, and of their possible future development. It introduces students to the 200-year-old history of the Indian press as well as to the significantly different history of radio and television in India. The areas covered include the press and the independence movement, and movements for social reform and transformation; the growth of the print, broadcast, and new media and their relationship to the development of capitalism (up to the present era of globalisation); the impact of the Emergency and explicit and implicit forms of censorship operating on the news media; the explosive growth of television following the Direct Broadcast Satellite revolution; the impact of global media giants on news production and dissemination; the influence of the Internet and the new media on the context and practice of journalism; and the impact of convergence and digitisation.
