Book Description

This ebook; Imagining Indianness: Cultural Identity and Literature (PDF) brings together several important essays examining the interface between identity; culture; and literature within the issue of cultural identity in South Asian literature. The ebook explores how one imagines national identity and how this concept is revealed in the narratives of the nation and the production of various cultural discourses. The collection of essays examines questions related to the interpretation of the Indian present and past; the meanings of ancient and venerated cultural symbols in ancient times and modern while discussing the ideological implications of the interpretation of identity and “Indianness” and how they reflect and influence the power-structures of contemporary societies in South Asia. Thus; the ebook studies the various aspects of the on-going process of imagining; re-imagining; constructing; and narrating “Indianness”; as revealed in the literature and cultures of India.

Review

This edited collection by Thomas de Bruijn and Diana Dimitrova is an important addition to the field since it brings ideas and debates of ‘Indianness’ … . Importantly; Imagining Indianness: Cultural Identity and Literature is a timely publication as once again; we are called to consider more recent; post-millennial literary and cultural production and its interface with an ever-changing sense of ‘Indianness.’” – E. Dawson Varughese; Asiatic; Vol. 11
