This volume contains seventeen path-breaking essays by Indian, European, Indo-Scottish, and Indo-American scholars. It seeks to affirm heterogeneity and difference, celebrating multi-dimensional modes of looking at South Asian diasporic cinema and theatre in the new millennium. The essays in the anthology engage in critical conversations around diverse themes—from ‘home’ and ‘homeland’ in Afghan Cinema, to the Partition of India. This co-mingling of multiple voices articulates the new, topical and sometimes radical dimensions of contemporary South Asian film and drama. In essence, the credo of this compendium is to breach extant disciplinary boundaries and establish a stimulating and thought-provoking rapport with its readers. With a polyvocality stemming from its panoply of eminent international contributors, this volume acts as a bridge, dissolving borders and addressing often-specious cultural pre-conceptions. It forges a cultural studies causeway across the largely reductionist duality of South Asian ‘diasporic’ and ‘domiciled’ visual arts. It is expected that this anthology, arguably the first of its kind, will be useful to both research students and academicians around the world. Contributors Ajay K. Chaubey Ashvin I.
