Theorizing and Critiquing Indian Diaspora

Adesh Pal (Editor) Kavita A. Sharma (Editor) Tapas Chakrabarti (Editor)
Synopsis The global Indian Diaspora today, plays a significant role in the socio-economic and political spheres of the host countries. The place that they have created for themselves in their host countries testifies to their resilience and remarkable capacity to adopt and adapt. To assess the success of the global Indian Diaspora and to explore and evaluate its response to its land of origin, an International Seminar was organized by Post Graduate Diploma in Communicative English, Hemachandracharya North Gujarat University, Patan. The proceedings of the seminar have been published in the form of two books. The present book contains papers that debate and formulate the key theoretical concepts about the Indian Diaspora such as that of homeland, acculturation, religion, caste, ethnicity, double citizenship, gender and other interrelated issues. The successes and failures of the Indian Diaspora in different countries of the world are also taken up for analysis; for instance the condition of the Fijian Diaspora, or the writings of Punjabi Diaspora or those pertaining to the Asian woman. The contributors try to work out paradigms for analyzing and studying the Indian Diaspora keeping in mind the uniqueness of its movement and dispersal. The book will serve as an invaluable reference work for those interested in the theoretical issues related to the Indian Diaspora.
