This book maps the new formations in Indian diaspora by considering its literary and cultural representations. It examines how contemporary Indian diaspora literature(s) and films produced in the last twenty years have tried to negotiate the changing experiences of the Indian diaspora communities across the globe. The book studies how Indian diaspora writers/film makers have been negotiating issues like inter/intra-community diasporic interactions and the transformation of the relationships between the host country and the Indian diaspora communities due to changes in the nature of capital flow, transnational trade, and globalization. It also studies the responses of the Indian diaspora writers/film makers to the changes in the immigration policies of the host countries in the face of terrorist threats. In so doing, the book examines how far the representations of the hostland and the homeland by the contemporary Indian diaspora writers/film makers are mediated by certain factors relating to the production and consumption of Indian diaspora literature(s)/films. Printed Pages: 254.
