Book Chapter on Deconstructing the Gender-Based Violence in South Asian Literature and Popular Culture

Gender-based violence is a worldwide issue with an extended past that is predominantly an outcome of social norms and power disparities. In countries as different as Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Nicaragua, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe, studies find that violence is frequently viewed as physical chastisement—the husband’s right to ‘correct’ an erring wife (Heise 1999). Unfortunately, it is one of many societal concerns that literature has long addressed. According to the analysis of a report by CARE and International Rescue, gender-based violence has arisen amid the pandemic and quarantines (Haneef and Kalyanpur 2020).

Edited by Nizara Hazarika & Namrata Pathak

Critical essays are invited for a book on queer representations in literature from South Asian countries. The local and allied global developments in queer literature in the regions and subregions of South Asia encompass diverse themes which bring to the fore the intricacies of political activism and demand for rights and policies cutting across myriad socio-cultural forums and settings. Emphasizing on how local, 'situated' and specialized knowledge is produced and how they impact operations of power in multi layered South Asian societies, the proposed book would throw light on shared and shifting conversations on/of queer communities across diverse disciplines, fields of knowledge and areas.
