This book is a collection of articles written by international members of the Spanish Association for Interdisciplinary India Studies, a scientific organization dedicated to the development of studies on India from an interdisciplinary perspective, and which seeks to promote cultural and scientific relations between India and Spain.It covers many areas of the Humanities such as literature, film studies, history, and literary theory from an Indo-Canadian perspective. The book is divided into two parts. Part I is dedicated to literature and literary criticism. While some articles focus on individual authors, others make a broad analysis of particular themes, such as the Indian diaspora in Canada from a feminist perspective, gender and power relations, or focus on specific locations such as the reconstruction of India in East Africa, the Iberian connection in Indo-Canadian diasporic history, and India in Canada within the historical and literary consciousness. Part II of the book includes several essays on audiovisual translation, film, drama, poetry as well as three pieces of creative writing by renowned Indo-Canadian authors.
