About the Book


The book attempts to analyse a literary text and cinema as medium of telling the story and historicising the experiences of diaspora. It critiques the identity in transnational space by referring to South Asian Diaspora, especially Indian Diaspora. The book is both interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary in nature as it deals with transnational studies, diaspora studies, literature, film studies and cultural studies. The width and depth of the book explores various areas and highlights the complexity of human identity (both individual and collective) and puts forth a coherent argument to understand them in transnational space. It shows new paths of doing research by exploring both literature and cinema along with adaptation of literary texts into films. It also opens new questions in understanding the migrants and diasporas and new avenues of research to probe wider and deeper. The book will be of immense interest to budding scholars of transnational studies, diaspora studies, literature and film studies, along with policy makers and general public who are interested in understanding the issues of migrants and diasporas in transnational and global world.
