National Seminar on Experiences, Aspirations and Struggles 2018

Event Description

The “newness” in the Indian Middle class, an urban trait associated with a heightened degree of consumption, has been traced to the effects of the neoliberal shift in India’s economy since the 1990s and is associated with the departure from the old middle class. Central to this shift to the new middle class is a new availability of easy capital and high purchasing power in a rapidly globalizing economy. This shift is also marked by a new assertive political role and an articulation of a new class identity based in mediated socio-symbolic practices of consumption and aspiration; lifestyles, education, employment and leisure, associated with commodities.
