The phenomena of migration, exile and displacement have been a concern to cultural critics and scholars of South Asia for over a decade now. The papers in this volume were first presented at a conference held in 1993 at Columbia University. It was an opportunity to examine various aspects of culture and identity among people of South Asian ethnic origins who live outside South Asia. Participants considered and analysed the geographical extent of what is often so casually refered to as the South Asian diaspora and the wide range of sub-ethnicities implied. Contents: 1.
