Teaching Anglophone South Asian Women Writers

Global and cosmopolitan since the late nineteenth century, anglophone South Asian women's writing has flourished in many genres and locations, encompassing diverse works linked by issues of language, geography, history, culture, gender, and literary tradition. Whether writing in the homeland or in the diaspora, authors offer representations of social struggle and inequality while articulating possibilities for resistance.

In this volume experienced instructors attend to the style and aesthetics of the texts as well as provide necessary background for students. Essays address historical and political contexts, including colonialism, partition, migration, ecological concerns, and evolving gender roles, and consider both traditional and contemporary genres such as graphic novels, chick lit, and Instapoetry. Presenting ideas for courses in Asian studies, women's studies, postcolonial literature, and world literature, this book asks broadly what it means to study anglophone South Asian women's writing in the United States, in Asia, and around the world.

Reviews

"This is an expansive volume that will be useful to teachers of South Asian studies, gender studies, and postcolonial literature. Covering both widely known and noncanonical texts, the essays offer an exciting array of methods for teaching anglophone South Asian women's writing from a range of theoretical perspectives and cultural contexts." —Ulka Anjaria, Brandeis University
