|Title:||Multiple Voices : Indian literature, world literature|
Literatur and literary scholarship from India, though sometimes unacknowledged, have been at the forefront of revitalising interest in the idea of ‘world literature’—a field of study that stresses global circulation, transcultural reading practices, broad structural patterns, and often unexpected connections among books and readers. As India has grown in prominence on the world stage, so too have its writers. The 1990s and 2000s witnessed a dramatic boom in Indian writers working in English, while the study of India’s many literary traditions has grown in strength in universities outside of India. The emerging concept of world literature has much to gain from debates that have long held sway within the study of the subcontinent.
