Representations of Women in Bombay Cinema, 1918-1936

Supervised by: Dr Tom Rice

My research explores the representations of women in Bombay cinema, with a focus on silent films. I will be examining these representations within political, social and cultural contexts such as nationalism, visibility of women in the public sphere and the changing public perceptions of ‘respectability’ and modernity.
