Abstract

This paper sets the issues and questions for interdisciplinary academic study of local protest with global claims,as it relates to use of the media. The author presents an historical background before then using the example of Arundhati Roy's writing on the Narmada Dams controversy and her essay 'walking with the comrades' on jungle Naxalite protest in India as a vehicle for analysis the uses of new Gramsci'ist counter hegemony theory, combined with elements of Judith Butler's ideas on performance and the media. What do these mean for activist articulations in the media ?
