The contributors address the roles of these various intertwined interests in the making of India's public culture, each examining different sites of consumption. The sites they explore include cinema, radio, cricket, restaurants, and tourism. Consuming Modernity also makes clear the differences among public, mass, and popular culture. Contributors include Arjun Appadurai, Frank F. Conlon, Sara Dickey, Paul Greenough, David Lelyveld, Barbara N. Ramusack, Rosie Thomas, and Phillip B. Zarrilli.

Contested Closets: The Politics and Ethics of Outing Contested Closets The Politics and Ethics of Outing Larry Gross 1993 Fall
A landmark exploration of the practice of revealing a public figure’s hidden homosexuality through the controversial practice of outing. “Combines a powerfully argued essay with a comprehensive anthology of articles to create an invaluable document on ‘outing.’ Gross’s fearless and fascinating book calls persuasively for ending a code of silence that has long served hypocrisy and double-standard morality at the expense of truth.” --Martin Duberman “This is a valuable contribution to the ongoing debate among journalists and gay activists over ‘outing.’ . . . Gross is a defender of the controversial practice, but one of the greatest strengths of this book is the evenhandedness with which he presents the arguments of each side. He argues that outing is a practice with ‘a long past, if only a short history,’ and spends much of the book’s first half putting it into a historical context. In the course of doing so, he discusses the nature and construction of gay identity and a history of the outing controversies of the past ten years. Gross is a lucid writer who makes a difficult case well. . . . The second half of the book is a collection of key texts in the debate on outing-including several by Michelangelo Signorile, the foremost journalistic proponent of the practice.” --Publishers Weekly

Creating American Civilization: A Genealogy of American Literature as an Academic Discipline Creating American Civilization A Genealogy of American Literature as an Academic Discipline David R. Shumway 1994 Spring
“‘American literature’ seems by now so natural and inevitable an entity that we forget that it did not just grow organically out of American soil, much less spring full blown from the minds of a few geniuses. In this highly readable study, David Shumway recovers the forgotten social, historical, and institutional conditions that explain why the concepts both of ‘literature’ and of distinctive literary Americanness emerged together at a particular time and place and how their merger reshaped America's educational vision. Shumway has written a penetrating and provocative account of the making of American Civilization as an academic field.” --Gerald Graff, University of Chicago
