Creating Slogans for Social Change

An Inquiry into Advertising, Gender Imagery, and the Politics of Change in Urban India.

What role media content plays in processes of change is an ongoing and multi-layered discussion. Therein, advertising and gender have an extraordinary position. In the context of advertising production in urban India, this book deals with the understanding of social change in the early 2010s. Through an inquiry of the production of advertising created for commercial and/or social purposes, the perceptions of advertising producers are highlighted. The analysis presents the realities of the producers as well as debates surrounding the creation processes. Thereby, the complexities and intertwining of advertising are uncovered, while dynamics of gender, media, and change are discussed.

Mette Gabler received her PhD in the history and society of South Asia from the Institute for Asian and African Studies at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. After studying Indology at the University of Copenhagen and Development and Management at Lund University, she combined her interests in medialisation, gender and social change in her doctoral thesis.
