Violent Belongings: Partition, Gender, and National Culture in Postcolonial India (BOK)
Sendes vanligvis innen 5-15 dager
Violent Belongings is about the relationship between culture and violence in the modern world, exploring contemporary ethnic and gendered violence and the questions about belonging that trouble nations and nationalisms today. Kavita Daiya examines South Asian ethnic violence and related mass migration during and after 1947 through their representation in postcolonial Indian and, more broadly, global South Asian literature and culture. By reading such texts as Khushwant Singh's Train to Pakistan alongside Salman Rushdie's Shalimar the Clown and Jhumpa Lahiri's The Interpreter of Maladies and by considering the writings of Mahatma Gandhi, Bollywood cinema, and diasporic films like Deepa Mehta's Earth, Daiya illuminates the cultural and political negotiation of post-colonial migration, nationality, and violence in transnational public spheres.
