This panel focuses on the alter ego or the second self, asking what it might mean to imagine someone/something as another instance of one's self. Papers might address a wide range of "second selves," including twins, friends, spouses, children, ambassadors, avatars, emissaries, representatives, rivals, foils, doubles, and impersonators. Participants might also treat the topic more abstractly, as in the case of one's reputation, credit, image, office, or personae. We will be especially interested in how these alter egos might ask, answer, or unsettle questions of identity, epistemology, and ethics (e.g., altruism, sympathy, and "loving thy neighbor as thyself.").

When names like V.S. Naipaul, Kiran Desai, Bharati Mukherjee, Rohinton Mistry, Jhumpa Lahiri or Salman Rushdie are mentioned, one immediately associates them with authors of literary value, to protruding cultural and/or postcolonial stance and to India. In recent years literary criticism has paid much attention to authors of Indian origin: issues like identity, diaspora, nationalism, transnationalism and other key concepts have been the focus of much critical attention. However, none of these writers live in India, and some of them were not even born there.
