Between the Lines: South Asians and Postcoloniality

Voorkant
Deepika Bahri, Mary Vasudeva
Temple University Press, 2009 - 386 pagina's

This ground-breaking collection of new interviews, critical essays, and commentary explores South Asian identity and culture. Sensitive to the false homogeneity implied by South Asian, diaspora, postcolonial, and Asian American, the contributors attempt to unpack these terms. By examining the social, economic, and historical particularities of people who live between the linesOCoon and between bordersOCothey reinstate questions of power and privilege, agency and resistance. As South Asians living in the United States and Canada, each to some degree must reflect on the interaction of the personal I, the collective we, and the world beyond.

The South Asian scholars gathered together in this volume speak from a variety of theoretical perspectives; in the essays and interviews that cross the boundaries of conventional academic disciplines, they engage in intense, sometimes contentious, debate.
