oa Communicare : Journal for Communication Sciences in Southern Africa - Diaspora and postmodern fecundity

Volume 16, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0259-0069



Our object of study is the Indian diaspora as it redefines the Indian nation. We look at specific political controversies among immigrant/expatriate Indians about what it means to be properly Indian. We trace the Indian diaspora's relation to 'home' and 'host' nations in cinematic representations originating both in and outside of India. As diasporic cultural productions are celebrated as part and parcel of the global postmodernism, we use this occasion to take a hard look at the promises of postmodern fecundity.
