Between the text and reader: addressing contemporary issues of censorship, self regulation and freedom of speech

We are heading and experiencing toward a media landscape where the presence of powerful and dominant authority restricts what we writes and what we reads. To their arguments, the censorship makes media text free from the political incorrectness, which hinders the governance and the state harmony. The censorship is even visible from educational text books to video games based on various issues ranging from religion to national security. The media is also facing the issue of censorship which could be studied and understood historically and politically. Furthermore, the complete ban and boycotting the media text, not only suppressing the freedom of expression, but also disconnecting the links of truth.
The recent examples from the Indian media sphere like banning of the documentary India’s daughter (dir. Leslee Udwin), call for ban and boycott film PK (dir. Rajkumar Hirani) and recent developments in film censoring give hints on how media freedom is limited. In response, there are various retort emerging through social media against the act of censorship. The question here arises is who will take responsibility of neglected messages which shadowed down in the process of censoring? In his influential essay on internet censorship Michael Landier (1994) views censorship as “counterproductive” as “it prevents the censored topic from being discussed”.
On the grounds of the above discussed, we call for original research articles from individual and co-authors which provoke serious dialogue and brew discussions to address the issues of censorship, self regulation and media laws. The articles may be in the form of analytical, interpretive, theoretical or case studies of any concerned issue. The papers may address (but are not limited to) the following topics:

• History of censorship
• Media regulation in India
• Media freedom
• New media activism
• Media and human rights
• Morality and media text
• Resisting censorship
• Corporate censorship
• Media Ethics
• Media ownership and content
The interested authors should send the full paper with and a brief bio to knithin@jpr.amity.edu by May 31, 2015.
