Cultures of Violence in South Asia EditorialSpecial Issue of Kairos: A Journal of Critical Symposium (Vol.2, Issue 1, 2017) While the Indian Subcontinent lays claim to a rich legacy of anti-colonialism borne out of Gandhian ideals of non-violence, it is fraught with periodic flare-ups of violence between the state, insurgency groups, religious organizations, among a wide spectrum of other actors. It could even be argued that the violence has been congenital to the nation-state formation in the Indian Subcontinent, as exemplified in the rich literary tradition of the Partition narratives by SaadatManto, Ahmed Ali, Khushwant Singh, and Bapsi Sidhwa.

We invite papers exploring any aspect of religion, spirituality, and the sacred in Wharton’s work, including the afterlives of religion in gothic, aestheticism, or satire. How does Wharton conceptualize belief, spirituality, or religious tradition within modernity? What place does the sacred have in her writing, and where are the sacred spaces in her work? Are there distinctive features to Wharton’s discussions of religious architecture or sacred art? What interactions take place between Wharton’s fiction and the Bible, or religious texts and genres? How does Wharton’s anthropological eye address religious movements, practices, or characters?
