Jaidka, Manju & Raina, Anil (Eds.)
This book, published in conjunction with the 2005 Conference of MELUS-India (the Society for the Study of the Multi-Ethnic Literature of the United States), gathers research papers from the prior year’s event. It focuses on significant milestones in American culture, including literature, art, popular arts, media, and other areas. The essays collected here are transdisciplinary and engage in cross-generic debates as well as conventional divisions.
They consider a range of themes, such as self-discovery, identity formation, social activism, Fascism and other ideologies in the American context and how writers respond to these issues.
This collection is a loving tribute to Isaac Sequeira, Professor of English at Osmania University, Hyderabad, an important academic on the national stage who served as a guiding light for MELUS-India.
