Book Description

This book, Imagining Indianness: Cultural Identity and Literature, is a collection of essential articles that investigate the intersection of identification, culture, and literature in the context of the problem of cultural identity in South Asian literature. The book is available in PDF format. This ebook investigates the ways in which one imagines national identity, as well as the ways in which this idea is exposed in the histories of the nation and in the formation of distinct cultural discourses. The collection of essays investigates questions pertaining 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. As a result, this ebook investigates the numerous facets of the ongoing process of conceiving, re-imagining, creating, and narrating “Indianness,” as shown in the writings and cultures of India.

Review

“This edited collection by Thomas de Bruijn and Diana Dimitrova is an essential addition to the subject since it brings ideas and discussions about ‘Indianness’…,” the editors write in their introduction to the volume. Importantly, Imagining Indianness: Cultural Identity and Literature is an opportune release because, once again, we are called to analyze more recent, post-millennial literary and cultural creation and how it interacts with a constantly shifting concept of ‘Indianness.'” Vol. 11 of the Asiatic Languages of E. Dawson Varughese
