Lakshmi Publishes Essay

Tags Literature and Creative Writing
Aishwarya Lakshmi, assistant professor of English, has published an essay in an edited volume on postcolonialism. The essay titled “Re-presenting the Empire: the Picturesque Aesthetic in Satyajit Ray's ‘The Chess Players’” appears in Colonization or Globalization? Postcolonial Explorations of Imperial Expansion (Lexington Books).

According to the publisher, the book “presents new scholarship on the subject of imperial expansion through colonization and globalization from a variety of postcolonial perspectives. The essays in this volume, grouped in three chapters, scrutinize imperial expansion within the context of national identities and imageries-deconstructing the modernist and utopian idea of a nation as a site of homogeneity, and reviewing the importance of the concept in the different phases of colonization.”
