Paradoxes of Postcolonial Culture: Contemporary Women's Writing of the Indian and AFro-Italian Diaspora written by Sandra Ponzanesi

 

Paradoxes of Postcolonial Culture: Contemporary Women's Writing of the Indian and AFro-Italian Diaspora written by Sandra Ponzanesi

Synopsis:

This innovative contribution to understanding the promise and contradictions of contemporary postcolonial culture applies a wide array of theoretical tools to a large body of literature. The author compares the work of established Indian writers including Bharati Mukherjee, Meena Alexander, Sara Suleri, and Sunetra Gupta to new writings by such AfroItalian immigrant women as Ermina dell'Oro, Maria Abbebù Viarengo, Ribka Sibhatu, and Sirad Hassan. Sandra Ponzanesi's analysis highlights a set of dissymmetrical relationships that are set in the context of different imperial, linguistic, and market policies. By dealing with issues of representation linked to postcolonial literary genres, to gender and ethnicity questions, and to new cartographies of diaspora, this book imbues the postcolonial debate with a new élan.

Author Biography: Sandra Ponzanesi is Assistant Professor and Research Fellow of Gender and Postcolonial Studies at Utrecht University, The Netherlands.
