Here's what you say about us...

EMMA DAWSON VARUGHESE is an independent scholar. She works at the intersection of world literature and cultural studies, drawing on ethnographic research paradigms to conduct her fieldwork. She is author of Reading New India (2013) which explores post-millennial fiction from India, her specialism.

"Throughout the book, the discussion of the representative texts is consistently accompanied by an overview of the literature of the country, the historical backdrop, the various dynamics, which create the condition of postcoloniality, and interviews with writers hailing from the countries where the project was conducted. The lucidity of the style, as well as the author's profound grasp of the subject matter, helps her convey the ideas intelligently and compellingly . ." (Jamal En-Nehas, Comparative Literature Studies, Vol. 53 (3), 2016)
