New Bearings in English Studies: A Festschrift for C. T. Indra

C Vijayasree (Editor) R. Azhagarasan (Editor) Bruce Bennett (Editor) Mohan Ramanan (Editor) R. Palanivel (Editor) T. Sriraman (Editor)
Synopsis This festschrift for Professor C.T. Indra offers rich and varied fare. It begins naturally with a series of tributes to and reminiscences of Indra by several of her students, colleagues and admirers and modulates into the scholarly world of literary and cultural criticism which Indra has been practising with such distinction for decades now. The tone of these essays ranges from the deeply felt and personal to the most irrepressibly postmodern. The subjects handled are as diverse as the sense of place and how poetry is inspired by it, the question of reading and response and their relation to theory, the playfulness of postmodernism, post-diasporic literary history, the discipline of English and the English teacher in India, globalization and cosmopolitanism, transnationalism, making and breaking traditions, dramatic pedagogy, translation, the archive, imperialism, India and Australia, India and Canada, Bakhtinian discourse, the region, caste and so on. The authors constitute an international cast and are from India, Britain, France, Australia, the United States and Canada. This is truly a magnificent celebration of the scholar-adventurer that C.T. Indra is.
