n Nidan : International Journal for Indian Studies - Introduction : Indian diaspora : migration, identity and ethnicity (part two)

Volume 3 Number 2
  • ISSN : 2414-8636


In Part One of this special issue themed, “Indian Diaspora: Migration, Ethnicity and Identity,” we focused primarily on Hinduism in the Americas, specifically the United States and the Caribbean. In this second part, we shift away from a particular geographical focus to examine how diasporic Hinduism is embodied and performed, supports and challenges gendered norms, and is contested through oral and textual traditions, digital media, and secular spaces. Scholars of the present collection bring together a broad range of methodologies, theoretical frameworks and interdisciplinary approaches that work to highlight additional dimensions of diaspora as an interpretive category. We view the opportunity of the combined volumes as having the potential to expand generic associations of the homeland, authenticity-based performance, ethno-religious identities, and other singular categories that have come to be associated with the Indian diaspora.
