Anirban Baishya (University of Southern California)

This special issue of Porn Studies focuses on the varied notions of the pornographic and the obscene that are in currency in the geopolitical region of South Asia. Starting with the question of how a porn studies approach can be applied to view various regional formations of pornography, this issue aims to explore whether a particular "vernacular" idea of pornography can be arrived at through such an enquiry. Like questions of identity that can only be answered in the plural (identities rather than identity), this issue seeks papers that will demonstrate how a range of pornographies constitutes the force field of sexualized media in South Asia.
