Southbound Visions: Welcoming South Asian Culture Studies to Asia

For many decades the predominant academic envisioning of South Asian literary and cultural forms has been undertaken through the theoretical glasses of postcolonial, diaspora, and “ethnic” studies. South Asian literary studies as undertaken by the majority of scholars in the West continues to emphasize the works of Commonwealth artists and authors of South Asian heritage writing from within the West, such as Salman Rushdie, V.S. Naipaul, and Jhumpa Lahiri. This remains true as well for scholars and critics in Southeast and East Asia whose proximity to the South Asian subcontinent might naturally encourage their interest, such as those writing from universities in urban centers of learning such as Singapore, Tokyo, Seoul, and Taipei.

FORUM Call for Papers, Issue 24: Taboo Taboo permeates all aspects of everyday life, acting as the boundary against which society polices human experience and experimentation. Frequently characterised as social or religious customs that proscribe particular ideas, practices, words or persons, taboos not only help define a set of shared rules for society, but also clarify the limitations of the accepted.  Kelly Hurley highlights the positive facets of taboo, suggesting that it is only through the enforcement of certain boundaries that humans might “continue to experience the world as an epistemologically stable site” (The Gothic Body 25).

Small Islands?Transnational Solidarity in Contemporary Literature and Arts

Editors for this issue: Rita Monticelli and Lorenzo Mari

 

While revising her ground-breaking essay titled “Under Western Eyes” (1986) for Feminism Without Borders. Decolonizing Theory, Practicing Solidarity (2003), Chandra Talpade Mohanty suggested that, however difficult, the conversation between Euro-American, postcolonial and other feminist traditions still envisions the “practice of solidarity” – rather than of “sisterhood” or other related terms – as a specific, transnational form of “anticapitalist struggle”.
