Call For Papers

Contributions are sought for an edited volume titled "Nation and Its Discontents" (under review by Sage). The question concerning how to produce and disseminate knowledge on the ‘nation’, functioning as both an idea and a polity, without dispelling the ‘cultural differences’, calls for re-conceptualizing spaces, identities, diasporas etc. beyond western perception of nationhood. The 'nation-state', as often been argued, is an overtly restrictive projection of a model derived from western European experience onto the non-West where it may/does not apply. While acknowledging that the idea of the 'nation' renders disjunctive temporalities, and multiple vernacular iterations, this volume seeks to understand the politico-cultural stakes in exportation and reception of the 'foreign' model, and the voices silenced thereby. Taking cues from Spivak’s (1990: 39) point, that there is no one India(n-ness): the Sanskritic past is too Indic, the name ‘India’ mistakenly given by Alexander, Hindustan by Islamic conquerors, Bharat (as it appears on Indian passports) is reminiscent of a mythic king, the volume aims to register the voices of difference and discontent that resist the modalities of nationalist and homogenizing (mis)conceptualization.

Please send in a 250 words abstract with a short bio-note (both in the body of the email) to nation.discontents@gmail.com by 30 January 2015. Those selected must be able to send complete article by another couple of weeks.
