The Shadow Lines (1988) is Amitav Ghosh’s acclaimed masterpiece. The novel won the Sahitya Akademi award, India’s most prestigious annual literary prize, as well as the Ananda Puraskar in 1990. The novel has gained enormous resonance in postcolonial studies as it touches upon some of the major issues in the fields of colonial history, national identities, memory,time and space, hybridity, transnationalism and borders. It has been seminal in the definition and discussion of a postcolonial cartography.

Metacritic Journal for Comparative Studies and Theory calls for the December issue of the Journal, welcoming a non-themed collection of papers written by established scholars and young researchers alike. Would-be contributors are invited to send articles illustrating the complexities of their field of choice, engaging with the literary and cultural theory so as to promote reading in a customized framework that privileges interdisciplinarity and self-reflection. We highly appreciate critical efforts to tackle contemporary fictional works while connecting them to philosophical attempts to theorize their cultural context. Especially encouraged are cultural, historical, and theoretical considerations suspicious of grand narratives.
