Genealogies of the Asian Present showcases the conceptual framework of the Inter-Asia Cultural Studies (IACS) project by consolidating insights from past thinkers, marking the continuity of concerns and their relationship to critical modern knowledge, and creating the pre-conditions for research in Inter-Asia cultural matters. There is also an archive section in the volume which contains foundational texts from specific national contexts. The contemporary essays which demonstrate new ways of asking the culture question from a number of different Asian locations are presented in six sections.

Mobilizing India: Women, Music, and Migration Between India and Trinidad
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8125033599 / 9788125033592; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
The book argues for the importance of comparative research across the global South. Key terms of contemporary critical analyses – colonialism, nation, modernity, citizenship, identity, and subjectivity – are often explicated in the bounded context of nation-states in the South, or with reference to Western European societies. Indeed, an important feature of twentieth century scholarship could well be the nation-centrism of the analyses of intellectual formations of the period. The project proceeds on the assumption that South-South comparative work problematizes the standard use of these terms, and adds new dimensions to their usage even in specific national contexts. The attempt is to change the frame of reference so that the “West” does not become the sole norm against which we measure each other. The central focus of the book is “the woman question” as it emerges through the mobilization of “Indianness” and other related notions of region, ethnic group or race. The intertwining of gender issues with the formation and assertion of different kinds of identities in Trinidad and India is explored. The analysis has a historical component and a more contemporary one, the latter being routed through popular music in Trinidad. Printed Pages: 272. 031544
