In recent years academic publishing has unveiled the colonial history and regional formations in India. Regrettably Orissa remains an area of darkness. A volume that examines the nineteenth century cultural history of Orissa from the postcolonial angle by drawing primarily from literary sources has been largely absent. How is Orissa's identity defined during the Raj. This book focuses on issues such as feudalism and colonial modernity language politics and the rhetoric of progress westernization nativity and border crossing. It brings the archive to centre stage and employs theoretical tools from the field of gender translation and culture studies. We witness the intersections between memory and desire colonial subjugations and postcolonial longings. 176 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 69189
