This volume aims to look both at as well as beyond the 'Delhi Gang Rape' through the lens of Indian Media Studies. The editors consider it a critical event, or rather critical media event that needs to be contextualized within a rapidly changing, diversifying and globalizing Indian society which is as much confronted with new ruptures, asymmetries and inequalities as it may still be shaped by the old-established structures of a patriarchal social order. But the volume also looks beyond the 'Delhi Gang Rape' and introduces other related thematic areas of an emerging research field which links Youth, Media and Gender Studies.
