Synopsis

During the past two decades, at the same time that the South Asian presence in the US and UK has become an increasingly notable part of mainstream social life and popular culture, scholars of South Asian descent have come to occupy many prominent positions within the Western academy, shaping the development of disciplines across the social sciences and humanities. In this collection of highly personal essays, leading figures in anthropology, history, and cultural and literary studies reflect on the complex interplay between individual and collective trajectories, examining their own experiences as students, scholars, and teachers.Their narratives trace the arc of interactions between East and West from the late colonial period, through Indian Independence, the Cold War, the radicalism of the 60s, and the development of subaltern and postcolonial studies, to the current conjuncture. Throughout, these writers explore the past and future significance of area studies as a paradigm for education and scholarship.
