Call for Papers
The study of Diaspora has become singularly important in contemporary times as the world
today is in a flux. Migrancy is more a norm than an exception. From the time of the Girmits we
have come a long way where the “migrant” can now be a citizen of the host country and can even
take part in the electoral process. Diasporic experiences in the current scenario need not be merely
about nostalgia and created homelands but can also be a treatise of trying to understand the
nuances of both the host and the home land.
Whether the migrations have been through choice or compulsion, the notion of Diaspora in
particular has been productive in its attention to the real-life movement of people throughout the
world. The greatest significance to the Postcolonial theory is the consideration of the
epistemological implications of Diaspora as theory. These studies look upon Migrancy in terms of
adaptation and construction – adaptation to changes, dislocations and transformations and finally
the construction of new forms of knowledge and ways of seeing the world.
These “mutual transformations”, as Leela Gandhi has called them, affected the colonizer and the
colonized, the migrants as well as the indigenous populations, victims and the victimizers. The
literature produced out of the Diasporic experiences has always been about constructing fictions
that fit realities and those that don't. The quality and quantity of literary writing by Diasporic
people merit sustained, historically located critical attention. Such readings could transform our
reception of contemporary fiction and our understanding of literature.

Theory of Diaspora and Postcolonialism

Homeland and Hostland
