Peripheral Centres, Central Peripheries: India and Its Diaspora(s)
Martina Ghosh-Schellhorn, Vera Alexander
LIT Verlag Münster, 2006 - History - 294 pages
Prominent scholars in literary and cultural studies, anthropology, sociology, linguistics, media studies, theater production, and translation challenge the center-periphery dichotomy used as a paradigm for relations between colonizers and their erstwhile subjects in this collection of critical interventions.
Focussing on India and its diaspora(s) in western industrialized nations and former British colonies, this volume engages with topics of centrality and/or peripherality, particularly in the context of Anglophone Indian writing, the Indian languages, Indian film as art and popular culture, cross-cultural Shakespeare, diasporic pedagogy, and transcultural identity.
Martina Ghosh-Schellhorn is professor of new English-speaking cultures at the University of Saarland, (Germany).
