Omtale India : Research on Cultural Encounters and Representations at Linnaeus Uni

This volume brings together and presents multidisciplinary research related to India at Linnaeus University in Växjö, Sweden. With contributions by researchers working in different disciplines and from various theoretical perspectives, the book explores cultural encounters, developments, and events in historical and contemporary India, and how narratives about people and cultures in India have been presented and represented through European and Scandinavian colonial lenses. Several contributions illustrate how people resist oppression, cooperate across borders, and transform cultural practices when their experiences and representations converge in complex ways. The book opens a window on research conducted at Linnaeus University while making an empirically based contribution to the academic study of Indian history and society.
