This panel will explore issues of childhood and hybridity in the fiction and film of Indian diaspora, looking at how childhood is represented and/or constructed at the moment of cross-cultural encounter. How are childhood and identity represented in texts or films whose child characters straddle geographical and cultural worlds?
The special theme for the 2013 PAMLA conference is "Stages of Life: Age, Identity, and Culture."
