Goddess and the Nation by Ramaswamy, Sumathi
Goddess and the Nation: Mapping Mother India
by Ramaswamy, Sumathi
 
Making the case for a new kind of visual history, Ramaswamy charts the pictorial life and career of Bharat Mata, "Mother India," the Indian nation imagined as mother/goddess and unifying symbol for the country’s diverse communities. The book draws on visual studies, gender studies, and the history of cartography to offer a rigorous analysis of Mother India’s appearance in painting, print, poster art, and pictures from the late 19th century to the present.
