[UPDATE] Diasporic Consciousness: Literatures from the Postcolonial World 31.07.2010

Tuesday, May 11, 2010 - 1:30am
Dr. Smriti Singh, Indian Institute of Technology Patna; Dr. Achal Sinha, St. Xavier's, Ranchi

Due to globalization, multiculturalism and migration, there has been a change in the outlook of the people. The modern people are rooted in ideas rather than places, in memories as well as in material things. Salman Rushdie is of the opinion that migrants can see the illusionary reality clearly as they have crossed borders. In this context, it would be interesting to examine the effects of globalization and multiculturalism on people from around the world and study its representation in literature. The aim behind this book is to collect and publish papers on migration, identity, hybridity, ethnicity in order to engage in a critical debate regarding these issues as well as to encourage research scholars into critical thinking.

Dr. Smriti Singh, Indian Institute of Technology Patna; Dr. Achal Sinha, St. Xavier's, Ranchi

In the present day world characterized by globalization, multiculturalism and migration, we find people who root themselves in ideas rather than places, in memories and material things. This book aims at collecting articles on diasporas around the world. The editors are looking forward to articles dealing with migration, hybridity, postcoloniality, identity, culture, ethnicity, minority studies which would not only generate new and critical discussions but also would be of help to research scholars.
