Beschreibung:

The Diaspora Writes Home: Subcontinental Narratives is a work of gathering the multiple dispersions of the emigrants from South Asia across time and space to the various homelands they relate to now. The word ?write? is used in all its multiplicity the fact of creative expression, as an inscription, a mark and writing as a connectivity, a remembrance, an involvement with memory with all its shifts. Writing is also a representation and carries its own baggage of poetics and aesthetics, categories which need to be problematised vis-à-vis the writer and his/her emotional location. This work, thus, explores the many ways the diaspora remembers and reflects upon the lost homeland and its own relationship with an ancestral past, its history, culture and the current political conflicts. Amongst the questions it asks is ?how does the diaspora relate to us at home and what is our relationship to them as representatives of our present?? The last is problematic in itself for our present is not theirs and distance cannot equate the two. The transformations that new locations have brought about as they have travelled through time and interacted with the politics of their new homelands wherever they be Africa, Fiji, the Caribbean Islands, UK, US and Canada, as well as the countries created out of India, such as Pakistan and Bangladesh, have altered their affiliations and perspectives. An important aspect of political emigrations is the refugee/muhajir especially in the subcontinent. The above issues together seek for new insights into the problematic of the diasporas? lost homes.

Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe: The Diaspora Writes Home looks at the multiple dispersions of the emigrants from South Asia across time and space, to the various homelands they relate to now. The word 'write' is used in all its creative expression: as an inscription, a mark of connectivity, a remembrance, and an involvement with memory with all its shifts. Writing is also a representation and carries its own baggage of poetics and aesthetics, categories which can be problematic vis-a-vis the writer and his/her emotional location. The book explores the many ways the diaspora remembers and reflects upon the lost homeland and its own relationship with an ancestral past, its history, culture, and the current political conflicts. Among the questions the book asks is: How does the diaspora relate to us at home and what is our relationship to migrants as representatives of our present? The last is problematic in itself for our present is not theirs and distance cannot equate the two. The transformations that new locations have brought about as they have traveled through time and interacted with the politics of their new homelands have altered their affiliations and perspectives. An important aspect of political emigrations is the refugee/muhajir, especially in the South Asia subcontinent. [Subject: Literary Criticism, Asian Studies, Migration Studies]

From the Back Cover:

This book by eminent author Jasbir Jain explores the many ways the diaspora remembers and reflects upon the lost homeland, and their relationship with their own ancestry, history of the homeland, culture and the current political conflicts. Amongst the questions this book asks is, ‘how does the diaspora relate to their home, and what is the homeland’s relationship to the diaspora as representatives of the contemporary homeland in another country?’. The last is an interesting point of discussion since the ‘present’ of the homeland and of the diaspora cannot be equated. The transformations that new locations have brought about as migrants have travelled through time and interacted with the politics of their settled lands―Africa, Fiji, the Caribbean Islands, the UK, the US, Canada, as well as the countries created out of British India, such as Pakistan and Bangladesh―have altered their affiliations and perspectives.

 

This book gathers multiple dispersions of emigrant writers and artistes from South Asia across time and space to the various homelands they relate to now. The word ‘write’ is used in its multiplicity to refer to creative expression, as an inscription, as connectivity, and remembrance. Writing is also a representation and carries its own baggage of poetics and aesthetics, categories which need to be problematised vis-à-vis the writer and his/her emotional location.
