About this Item: Cambridge University Press, 2013. Hardcover. Condition: New. Imagine the patriotic camaraderie of national day parades. How crucial is performance for the sustenance of the nation? The Performance of Nationalism considers the formation of the Indian and Pakistani nation, in the wake of the most violent chapter of its history: the partition of the subcontinent. In the process, Jisha Menon offers a fresh analysis of nationalism from the perspective of performance. Menon recuperates the manifold valences of `mimesis` as aesthetic representation, as the constitution of a community of witnesses, and as the mimetic relationality that underlies the encounter between India and Pakistan. The particular performances considered here range from Wagah border ceremonies, to the partition theatre of Asghar Wajahat, Kirti Jain, M. K. Raina, and the cinema of Ritwik Ghatak and M. S. Sathyu. By pointing to the tropes of twins, doubles, and doppelgangers that suffuse these performances, this study troubles the idea of two insular, autonomous nation-states of India and Pakistan. In the process, Menon recovers mimetic modes of thinking that unsettle the reified categories of identity politics. Contents 1. Introduction 2. Bordering on drama: the performance of politics and the politics of performance 3. Ghatak`s cinema and the discoherence of the Bengal partition 4. The poetics and politics of accommodation 5. Somatic texts and the gender of partition 6. Kashmir: hospitality and the `unfinished business` of partition. Printed Pages: 272. Seller Inventory # 76171
