Constructing South Asian National Identity in Literature and Film: Confluences on the Asian Subcontinent

When Partition created India, East Pakistan (later Bangladesh) and West Pakistan in 1947, the nationhood of these new states moved from the theoretical to the real in dramatic fashion, setting up complexities and contradictions that continue to reverberate into the present day. This panel will investigate the past, present, and future of these South Asian nations’ search for cultural identity in an examination of their fiction, poetry, and film.

In his 1938 essay, “Figura,” Erich Auerbach asserts that a figura, unlike an eidosconveying static form, is inherently invested in a relation to time. As Auerbach's use of the figure was polemically mobilized in order to undermine the manufactured barbarism of fascist philology in his time, so might the figure in yet other chronotopes direct readership to structures of barbarism, power, or erotic desire, for example, and their material and philosophical lineages in the world.

Many claim that the heyday of postcolonial studies has passed. Scholars have criticized the premises of postcolonial theory (Chibber), questioned the relevance of empire to British culture (Porter), and defended the legacy of British imperialism (Ferguson). Others have found postcolonial modes of analysis predictable or exhausted. New frameworks have arisen instead: global Anglophone, cosmopolitanism, the “new” world literature, and modernist studies with its temporal expansion into the contemporary. Yet, as Robert Young argues, the postcolonial has always been about what is unfinished, incomplete, and left over.
