DESI. Indian Values: Diaspora and Womanhood

Abstract : The third issue of DESI is dedicated to the engagement of social, anthropological and artistic questions regardind womanhood in the context of the Indian diaspora. Womanhood is a central component of the ideological construction of conservative "Indian values" which are often opposed to "western values", supposedly undermining the core principles of unchanging age-old traditions and debilitating the Indian social body. The ten contributions of this issue of Desi offer a transdisciplinary approach to the issues raised by Indian values in diaspora: the sociological aspects of the question are tackled together with aesthetic issues present in the representation of diasporic women in literature, cinema arts and music.
