Opposing all claims that theory has come to an end, this book presents a fresh perspective on our reading, understanding, and application of theory and its affect on our interpretation of texts. (In)fusion theory challenges efforts to see theory as inhibiting by presenting an approach that is innovative, eclectic, and subtle in order to draw out competing and constellating ideas and opinions. This collected volume of essays examines (In)fusion theory and demonstrates how the theory can be applied to the reading of various works of Indian English novelists such as Salman Rushdie, Amitav Ghosh, Anita Desai, and Vikram Seth.

Ranjan Ghosh is a Professor in the Department of English at Wroclaw University in Poland. He has published numerous articles on comparative aesthetics, critical theory, Indian English Literature, historical theory and Indian historiography.

Review:

We have heard about the death of theory for a decade, but of course the real question is what are the possibilities of theory now. This volume, with its sterling cast of contributors, offers some answers. It argues for a programmatic heterogeneity, fusing theories without disciplinary prejudice. (Jeffrey J. Williams, Editor, Editor,The Minnesota Review; Co-Editor The Norton Anthology of Theory and Criticism)

Theory has always been interdisciplinary in its aims and purposes. But with the proliferation of Theory in the last decades, theories tended to degenerate into mere variants of the outmoded disciplinary approaches. So what we presently need, above all, is an interdisciplinary approach to Theory. This is what the (In)fusion paradigm proposed in this volume admirably realizes. It does so not only by means of theoretical reflection, but by also giving convincing examples of what the new paradigm may bringgg (Frank Ankersmit, Groningen University)
