Main Research Topics
- Representation of India in British Literature
- One cannot discuss the culture of England without also discussing its colonies, especially India. The same is true for its literature. I analyze British literature and the effect that India has had on it.
- Folklore of India
- India is a treasure trove of oral folklore. I survey the folklores passed down through the different languages of India, and compare the folklores of different regions.
- Contemporary English Literature in India
- I research English literature in India, not as marginal British literature, and address questions as to whether the increasing numbers of English speakers in India will become leaders in a new style of English literature.
