TitleIs there a Koiné in Narrating Diasporic Experiences of “Indianness”?
AEDEAN 2008, 31: 665-674 ISBN-978-84-9749-278-2
[Abstract] It is our aim in this roundtable to explore common themes, motifs, historical and cultural allusions, etc. that the different works by first generation and other subsequent generations of Indian émigré writers, together with Indian writers in English, explore in conjunction with the notion of “Indianness”. We shall cross reference novels, plays, verses, and fables in an attempt to trace common threads of thought that link to ideas such as: the local and the global, religious fundamentalism vs. secularism, gender, exile, difference, nationalisms, and other common items to define a singular, or rather plural, Indian identity.
