Description

Interdisciplinary Alter-natives in Comparative Literature focuses on the recent debates on World Literature and their implications for Comparative Literature. The Eurocentric assumptions of comparative literature are laid bare in the essays in this volume. Further, this collection of essays demands a paradigmatic shift in the discipline to accommodate differences of ethnicity, gender, race, region, religion and caste. This book poses the need for alterative models of Comparative Literature based on the multicultural experiences of countries like India. However, the essays of the volume, collectively, open up possibilities of reinventing a discipline that has much to offer to a multilingual country like India.
