Review Quotes
Rosa Maria, ISCTE-University of Lisbon Institute
“The traditions of thought associated with colonial and post-colonial Goan literature are long-lasting and diverse. However, while much in the area of post-colonial studies in India has addressed literary texts as central to a broader social and political understanding, in the scholarly work on Goa there has been a drift to remain in the realm of the discipline, both geographically and thematically. This book initiates a cosmopolitan dialogue not only with other literatures of India but also with other disciplines, challenging the borders of univocal academic location and thinking.”
