Language does not confine itself to communication alone. It gets closely connected with politics, be it cultural, identity, or international politics. This becomes all the more true in the case of languages that were imported and imposed by colonial powers, and admired and followed by the colonised as the rulers’ language. English in the Dalit Context is set against this backdrop of the politics surrounding English in India. The volume, a collection of 15 essays, brings to the fore a multiplicity of views expressed by Dalit intellectuals and activists on ‘English’ in all its different senses. It also includes essays by non-Dalit scholars who have been long involved with questions of colonial modernity and of the English language in the Dalit context.Printed Pages:192.
