> This joint seminar sets out to explore recent fiction by
> three women authors from India who have chosen to write in
> English and/or in Hindi. Through a dialogic approach
> relating poetics and politics, text and context, the novels
> will be analysed closely in their historical, cultural and
> social environment, with a particular attention paid to
> issues of gender and the role of women in bringing social
> change. Students will be familiarized with the larger
> critical frameworks of connected history and
> postcolonial/global studies. The corpus includes Githa
> Hariharan's The Thousand Faces of Night, Shashi Deshpande's
> A Matter of Time, and Geetanjali Shree's Mai, originally
> written in Hindi but translated into English by Nita Kumar.
> Deshpande's and Shree's novel have been ordered at
> Booksbooksbooks, but we expect you to get your own
> (second-hand) copy of Hariharan's novel from Amazon.
> (n.b. : the previous corpus included Three Feminist Fables
> by Suniti Namjoshi and Anuradha Marwah Roy's The Higher
> Education of Geetika Mehendiratta, but the books are
> unfortunately out of print or not available in the West).
