Diaspora is the prominent issue of the Postcolonial literature. Diasporic literature explores the procedure of adaptation, resistance, nostalgia, cultural displacement, rootlessness and belongingness. Bharati Mukherjee is one of the renowned South Asian women novelists. As a Post-colonial writer she has written many extensive novels related to the problems women covering an extraordinary range of immigrant’s issues. Her novel The Holder of the World (1993) is a famous novel of cultural displacement, in which she has portrayed the picture of colonial India on the background of Mughal India.
In a paper entitled “American Literary Naturalism: A Passage to Modernity,” Paul Binford writes that the quest for power and wealth serves as one of the major themes of naturalist novels (180). For some of the characters in this novel, this quest is what drives them. The Morissey serve as a good example for though they are of mixed blood, they ultimately take advantage of their Native American brethren. Pauline in fact describes them as “well-off people, mixed-bloods who profited from acquiring allotments that many old Chippewa did not know how to keep” (Erdrich
I distinguish two dimensions of the relevance of diaspora engagement in conflicts. Of which both are not directly addressed with my thesis, but have a strong social and political impact. The first one is the conflict in the homeland and the second the influence on political and social decision making in the host country. The first dimension is that understanding the nature of diaspora engagement in the homelands, the international community could use them as peace-makers or understand their types of engagement strategies in order to reduce their escalating effect on the situation. Thus with the conflicts in Ukraine, in the Middle East and the ongoing refugee crisis in Europe, the question how people who leave their homelands engage in conflicts and how they support the cause of their parties are becoming a social and increasingly also a policy issues for countries such as Germany in which numerous strong diaspora groups exist.
Oodgeroo Noonuccal challenges the dominant ideology of egalitarianism and Australian cultural identity by Russel Ward's description in her poem ‘Aboriginal Charter of Rights.' The themes of racism, genocide, injustice, dispossession, colonisation, and violence contained in Oodgeroo Noonuccal's poem are compiled together in this poetic declaration of demands. She becomes an advocate for all those who have suffered and for those who wish to proceed forward in a more positive way. The tone of this poem, despite its negative reflection of the past, is hopeful. This is shown in the line ‘banish bans and conquer caste, then we'll win our own at last' which tells that Oodgeroo sees a resolution in the future for aboriginal people.
It is the exploration of part of our mind that our reality is unaware of. This movement helped artist explore new techniques and methods, encouraging them to explore new concepts. Its main goal was to depict a new world composed of our hidden ideas and fantasies, mostly based on our dreams. Influenced by Freud’s study and interpretation of dreams Salvador Dali based himself on psychoanalytical studies to create compositions representing his surreality. In order to accomplish a surreal painting, Dali focused solely on the unconscious part of his mind to uncover its hidden messages, using a method called the ' paranoiac critical method’ as seen in “The Great Masturbator.
The novels of Bharati Mukherjeee are self-actualising. Quest for definition of oneself and search for identity are the main features of women in her novels who had caught between tradition, culture and modernity. Her novels reveal the sufferings of most of woman in the alien land. In some of her novels she speaks about women who succeed in the alien land. Neither can they completely detach themselves from their part, nor do they have any sureness in the future.
Neil Lazarus noted that the term postcolonial emerged in the 1970 and 80s as a means of making sense of the tragedies that had occurred in many newly independent states, he also noted that the term was not a plainly neutral description of these states’ historical status . 4. Motivation and Significance of the Study: Opting for the use of novels and films to tackle the issues related to the Israeli Palestinian conflict is essentially a new topic and a challenging one in many ways. Little attention has been given to the combination of literature and cinema in general and to the Israeli Palestinian conflict in English Departments in Algeria in particular, thus, this study shall be a considerable contribution to both the study of the Israeli Palestinian conflict and the combination of literature and cinema in Anglophone studies. Ultimately, we look forward that this humble study will prompt further research in these
Balram’s protest, resitance ad act of breaking system is a blowng a trumpet for the rise of underdogs and subversion of social structure of India. The White Tiger is one of the Magnus opus literary efforts to bring into notice the issues of subaltern and their miserable condition before the world audience. Adiga’s novel exposes the difficulties that accrue the task of recuperating the consciousness and the voice of the oppressed and their subjugated histories in India. Taking this text in ambit of discussion of subaltern discourse, I think that subaltern resistance and voices in the novel is different from the canonised definition of these in postcolonial literature that is more complex for the understanding of subaltern engagement. So, what is the type of undertaken action of subaltern character in the novel?
