Rethinking the public

Policy Press

This chapter continues the theme of public mediation, showing how colonial publics emerged, functioned, and were made effective in late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century Delhi through print media. What were then ‘new’ media practices, the chapter argues, served to create not only important links, networks, and circuits of discussion between British and Indian arenas, but also an emerging ‘pan-Islamic’ movement. Based on archival research, the chapter presents an account of new voicings, silencing, and conflicts.

Keywords:   public mediation, colonial publics, print media, India, Britain, pan-Islamic movement
