Western Romance Fiction as English-Language Media in Postcolonial India.
Parameswaran, Radhika
Journal of Communication, v49 n3 p84-105 Sum 1999
Contributes to cultural-studies scholarship on ethnographic media studies by examining the reception of imported romance novels among women in postcolonial urban India. Shows that romance novels were found pleasurable because they were an extension of Indian women's childhood English-language reading, and they were viewed as resources to improve English-language skills and to bolster readers' identities as cosmopolitan women.
