I am organizing a panel in response to this year's call for papers from the Religion and Popular Culture Unit of the American Academy of Religion. In particular, I am responding to the call for papers on the topic of "Fictional Religions in Film, Literature, and Other Media." The creation of fictional worldviews is a fascinating aspect of robust worldmaking and mythopoesis, and the phenomenon suggests all sorts of interesting questions about the relationship between artistic creativity and the religious imagination, the dis- or re-enchanted qualities of the secular, the role of mass media in forming our worldviews, ways of life, and identities, and other issues.

This collection will examine the cinematic representations of the New Indian Woman in recent popular Hindi or Bollywood films. On the one hand, this figure is a variant of, and has trans-historical connections to, the phenomenon of the “New Woman” in England and the United States. On the other hand, in the Indian context, the New Woman is a distinct articulation resulting from the specificities of the nation’s tryst with neoliberal reform (introduced in 1991), consolidation of the middle class, and the ascendency of aggressive Hindutva or Hindu Right politics. In this scenario, as Rupal Oza has argued, the New Woman becomes a bodily site upon which these dramatic socio-cultural and economic upheavals are measured and contested.

Age Matters - Cultural Representations and the Politics of Ageing

In 2017, the well-known actress Miriam Margolyes proclaimed that “old age is going to be shitty” (Ferguson 2017). Such a negative outlook is nothing singular and looks back on a long history. Though old age has also been associated with positive characteristics and virtues such as wisdom and experience, more often than not the downsides of the ageing process have been paramount. From Socrates, who allegedly regarded old age as “the most burdensome part in life” (Xenophon in Parkin 2005, 55), to Shakespeare, for whom the last stage of life was “sans everything” (As You Like It, 2.7.167), to today, old age has commonly been understood in terms of bodily and mental decline and as nothing to look forward to.
