“Fables & Freedoms: The shaping of the built environment by women”
This thesis will attempt a transnational analysis (across India and Argentina or Mexico) of representations of modern design in mass media - specifically in periodicals - in order to find the ways in which women both consumed and produced text, image, art, artefact, and built form in the decades between 1920 and 1970. In particular, I seek to study the roles that caste and class played in modern design and the wielding of it by women, and their interrelationships with processes of globalisation in the pre- and post-colonial trajectories of the countries.
