Description

This book seeks to document the constitution of bodies of knowledge on South Asia spanning two centuries (19th–20th), by providing a genealogy of the institutionalisation and transformations occurring in South Asian studies across Europe, India and the United States.

Three specific points are addressed in the essays: the cognitive construction of South Asia in the American university system; the exploration of relations between national identities and respective traditions of research on South Asia in Great Britain and the United States throughout the 20th century; and a reflection on Subaltern studies, an Indian series born under the auspices of radical social history, which has now become a major entry point into postmodernist ideas.
