A Special Issue of South Asian Diaspora will be published in 2010 on:

“At Home in the World: South Asians and the BBC World Service 1932-2008”

Guest Editors: Marie Gillespie, Sharika Thiranagama, Gerd Baumann

 

The South Asian Diaspora, shaped by dispersions of people, goods, ideas and beliefs that flowed from and through the Indian Subcontinent is currently one of the world’s largest diasporas. India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bhutan and the Maldives

all anchor a sense of home for people who have moved outside the region through the centuries. These territories evoke emotional, social, political, economic, cultural and literary affiliations as well which find expression in multiple ways. The diaspora is also marked by struggles over meanings and tensions both amongst the diasporics and with people in the countries where the diasporics now inhabit. In South Asian Diaspora we aim to explore some of the issues that the South Asian diaspora presents for the contemporary world.
