Abstract:

  • The South Asia that I invoke is not a bounded space but a networked entity that straddles various cartographic imaginations in different ways. The ‘New Media’ that I talk about is unglamorously analog, occasionally hand powered, sometimes framed by bamboo supports and usually sheathed in organic resins, and the Antiquity I refer to (with an important exception) does not go back much beyond the nineteenth century.
