About this item

South Asian Diaspora Narratives: Roots and Routes, analyses the metaphysical and poetical notions and the processes of 'rooting into a culture' and 'routing out of a culture'. These diasporic narratives are often characterised by bifurcated and dislocated identities that exist in a liminal space, in-between two identities, two cultures, and two histories. Yet, 'home' remains, through acts of imagination, remembering and re-creation, an important reference point. It argues that a clearer notion of politics of location will be required to distinguish the different kinds of 'dislocation' the immigrants suffer, both psychologically and sociologically. This book fills a lacuna in the South Asian Diaspora studies by analysing and calling upon a wide range of works in this field from historical, anthropological, sociological, cultural, and literary studies.
