Sukalpa Bhattacharjee (Author)
Synopsis The essays in this volume seek to represent the incoherent currents of literary and cultural theory threatening the privileged status of the text and cultural practices. The central argument progresses through a celebration of multiple possibilities of genres and subjectivities which draw on the selective enterprises of many a author, critic and theorist who have tried to map a terrain for a moment of postcolonial emergence. The work examines the in-between spaces of various postcolonial subject positions and locations.

The book is step towards a dialogic encounter with otherness.
