The Expatriate: Indian Writing in English (In 3 Volumes)

T. Vinoda (Editor) P. Shailaja (Editor)
Synopsis The burgeoning presence of the diaspora Indian writing in English across the continents during the last three decades has, in recent times, triggered a new consideration of the cultural theories of nation, race, and identify. Con-versely theories drawn from Diasporic Studies/ Transnational studies are being increasingly pressed into service to interpret the writers of Indian origin who have settled in countries such as the US, Canada, England, Australia, Caribbean, Africa, far East, and other parts of the globe. Offered in the three-volume set here is a collection to essays and full-length area studies bibliography. The writers examined in the first two volumes include salman Rushdie, Amitav Ghosh, Vikram Seth, M.G. Vassanji, Bharati Mukherjee, Chitra Divakaruni, Rohinton Mistry, Shashi Tharoor, Anita Desai, Jhumpa lahiri, meera Syal, Amit Chaudhuri, Meena Alexander, Sunetra Gupta, Gita Mehta, Suniti Namjoshi, Shani Mottoo, Anurah Mathur, Amulya Malladi, Vineeta Vihayaraghavan, Anita rau Badami, Abraham Verghese, Peter Nazareth, and a few Indo-Guyanese writers,. The second volume mostly consists of the presentations at the National Seminar, " The Expatriate Indian Writing in English" held at university Post-Graduate College, Subedari, Kakatiya University, in September 2005. In an effort to enhance the referential value of this critical offering, the editors have included in the third volume, a bibliography with helpful annotations. The contributors to these volumes, drawn from the US, France, Spain, Italy, Finland and India, contemplate the complex questions of construction of self and identity in relation to nation, ethnicity, gender and culture. The book, it is hoped, will make a rich contribution to the fast-growing corpus of diaspora studies.
