About the Webinar

The study of diaspora is generally characterized by both a centripetal and a centrifugal approach: the former, holding
up the home nation as the ultimate reference point and thus viewing diasporas as distinct and cohesive entities, is
concerned with demarcating the boundaries of the term by establishing categorical definitions and typologies; the latter, viewing diaspora as inhabiting an interstitial space in relation to the receiving nation and thus as a hybrid formation and social condition, is interested in diasporic subjectivity as a question of becoming. The malleability of the concept has given rise to many debates about its meaning, application, and methodology, especially since the late 1980s when diaspora began to attract systematic critical attention. This opening up of the concept of diaspora, along with the increased global flow of people and parallel developments in other fields, has meant that, since the latter part of the 20th century, diaspora is examined in the adjacent contexts of globalization, postcolonialism, multiculturalism, transnationalism, and hybridity. The webinar will explore the south Asian elements in the work of a selection of diasporic writings through close reading of their work.
