Fractured Identity: The Indian Diaspora In Canada

Fractured Identity: The Indian Diaspora In Canada

Approx. Rs 495 / piece

With increased transnationalism and globalisation, diaspora studies has emerged as a vibrant area of research in humanities and social sciences. Bringing together some key essays in the field, this collection offers a comprehensive overview of Indian diaspora in Canada. The papers mainly hinge on the issue of the politics of identity. The assertion of identity, and the context of that assertion, is something that is apparently of concern to social scientists. The book also includes some papers that highlight areas which are still not part of most mainstream disciplines, as, for example, studies related to elderly, and to ethnohistory.

Indian Diaspora In Asian And Pacific Regions: Culture, People, Interactions

Indian Diaspora In Asian And Pacific Regions: Culture, People, Interactions

Approx. Rs 536 / piece

The word ‘diaspora’ suggests the idea of dispersal and fragmentation. That way, ‘Indian diaspora’ means Indian population outside India, particularly those who have migrated to foreign lands and in course of time abjured Indian citizenship. In other way, the term stands for the fragments of Indian population outside India who are supposedly foreign nationals belonging to the country of their migration. When one speaks of an Indian diaspora, it indicates widely disparate elements from Indian subcontinent into an Indian community overseas-either in the neighbouring countries or far abroad.

Writers Of The Indian Diaspora Cyril Dabydeen

Writers Of The Indian Diaspora Cyril Dabydeen

Approx. Rs 315 / piece

“Cyril Dabydeen” is a monograph that looks at the writings of Cyril Dabydeen against the background of diasporic theory. The volume analyses the poetry, short stories and novels of this great Canadian writer who has been acknowledged as “one of the most confident and accomplished voices of the Caribbean Diaspora this side of the late 20th century” (Kamau Brathwaite). An attempt is made to explore the context of marginal writing in Canada and the efflorescence of thematic and stylistic nuances that emerge in such writing. Dabydeen’s writings are not merely an escape into nostalgia to create a romantic vision but a journey undertaken to unravel the hitherto hidden recesses of the Caribbean and its peoples. Dabydeen’s poetry, as all imaginative writing are, is saturated with memories of his past and the re-shaping of Indo-Caribbean sensibility in Canada.

Writers Of The Indian Diaspora

Writers Of The Indian Diaspora

Approx. Rs 518 / piece

“Writers of the Indian Diaspora” have been fairly centrestage in the last decade primarily because of the theoretical formulations which are now being generated by the critiquing of their work and the growing interest in cultural studies. Language and cultures are transformed as they come into contact with other languages and cultures. Diasporic writing raises questions regarding the definitions of 'home' and 'nation'. Schizophrenia and/or nostalgia are often the preoccupations of these writers as they seek to locate themselves in new cultures. It becomes important to question the nature of their relationship with the work of writers and literatures of the country of their origin and to examine the different strategies they adopt in order to negotiate the cultural space of the countries of their adoption.

Ak Ramanujan: In Profile And Fragment

Ak Ramanujan: In Profile And Fragment

Approx. Rs 536 / piece

The reputation of Ramanujan the translator eclipses the claims of Ramanujan the poet. This book seeks to correct this critical lopsidedness, as it endeavours to establish his poetry as the mainstay of his creative genius. Akshaya Kumar argues that translation as an enterprise of dialogue and exchange between languages and cultures culminates into poetry – a poetry that imbibes and inheres the desi, the marga and the videshi variants of reality in a frame which is inevitably self-reflexive, dialogic and inter-civilizational.
