Anuradha Dingwaney Needham, the Donald R. Longman professor of English and cinema studies, has received a Fulbright-Nehru fellowship to conduct research in India on a collaborative project with well-known feminist scholar Rajeswari Sunder Rajan. Together, they are working on a monograph provisionally entitled Sighting/Citing/Siting Women in Postcolonial Indian Cinema: Feminist Readings. This project examines two periods, 1945-1965 and 1970-1990, in Indian cinema that witnessed a slew of women-centered films (i.e., films centering women as protagonists and/or engaging with issues related to women’s status and roles in society). The fellowship will enable Needham to examine archival materials at the Indian National Film Archives and meet with her collaborator and Indian film scholars.
