Revolving Around India(s): Alternative Images, Emerging Perspectives
This book highlights a variety of approaches to the study of contemporary India and offers a transnational, gender and social research perspective on the concepts of Indian tradition, the representation of the Indian diaspora and the emergent political activisms in India. The contributions suggest questions and answers about the various temporal and spatial loci inherent to India and its gender and ethnic differences. The volume analyses different cultural texts, and explores how they refer to equality and interculturality or promote discourses of fear and racism. The multiple viewpoints and analyses found in this volume will broaden and stimulate both upcoming outcomes and studies on the future of India.
