Anna Oldfield
Asian Studies Postdoctoral Fellow and Visiting Assistant Professor of Comparative Literature Anna Oldfield has published “‘Confusion in the Universe’: Conflict and Narrative in Qurratulain Hyder’s River of Fire” in The Annual of Urdu Studies 25 (2010).

The article examines the narrative structure of Qurratulain Hyder’s novel River of Fire, along with the issues that surround its unusual “transcreation” by the author into English 40 years after its publication in Urdu. The article will be available at the AUS website as well as in journal form. Oldfield taught this novel in Muslim Women Writers and Filmmakers (FA 2009) and is grateful to her students for their thought provoking feedback, which has contributed to her thinking about the novel and its challenges.
