Description

At the Crossroads of Culture and Literature offers a detailed and accessible socio-cultural and literary study of the material and symbolic life of indigenous communities and the South Asian diaspora in North America and India. The essays in this volume explore the manner in which contemporary indigenous and diasporic writers negotiate the ethical, political and personal affiliations of their identities and subjectivities. The volume initiates an intercultural dialogue which is crucial to an understanding of intercontinental relationships. The contributions on literature, philosophy, history, language, life-writing, international relations, gender and new media, focus on both literary texts and other forms of cultural representation. The book turns on the ways in which diverse aspects of Indigeneity and Diaspora have been inscribed in imaginative, autobiographical and critical texts. The volume is a significant contribution to the ongoing discourse on 'postcolonial' literature and culture. Intended for a wide readership, it is an invaluable resource for both scholars and students working in the field of Diasporic and Indigenous studies.
