Summary
"This multi-genre collection of essays presents the dramatic transformation of English Studies in India since the early 1990s. It showcases the shift from the study of mainly British literature and language to a more versatile terrain of multilingualism, culture, performance, theory, and the literary global South. Tracing this transition, the volume discusses themes like Indian literary history, post-colonial theory, post-pandemic challenges to literary studies, the state of Indian-English drama, vernacular literature in English studies and pedagogy, translations of feminist writers from South Asia, caste, and othering in literature, among other key themes. The volume, with contributions from eminent English Studies scholars not only reflects the altered terrain of English Language and Literature in India, but also invites readers to think about the transformative potential of the present juncture for both literary imagination and literary studies. This timely book, in honour of Professor GJV Prasad, will be of interest to scholars and researchers of English studies, cultural studies, literature, comparative literature, translation studies, postcolonial studies and critical theory"-- Provided by publisher.
