Original essays are invited for a collection of critical writings on Arundhati Roy, entitled "Globalizing Dissent: Essays on Arundhati Roy." This interdisciplinary volume will explore a range of issues that the acclaimed Indian writer explores both in her only novel and non-fictional works. The editors, Dr. Ranjan Ghosh of Darjeeling Government College (India) and Dr. Antonia Navarro-Tejero of Universidad de Cordoba (Spain), are interested in essays from a variety of fields, including politics, literary criticism, sociology, philosophy, history, ecology, and anthropology. (Essays on The God of Small Things are unlikely to be considered because we already have submissions, however.) Please, email 250-words abstract and brief CV to Prof.
