About the Book
The selection of essays in this volume, De-territorializing Diversities: Literatures of the Indigenous and Marginalised explore the dynamics of the problematic relationship within indigenous discourses hitherto marginalized and combating extinction. These ‘other’ voices, their lived experiences and ideological burdens are accorded their ‘space’ through meaningful explorations in the essays presented here. It is an attempt to look for the ‘untold’ in the told experiences of those at the margins. These essays unpeal their layered narratives to recover ‘lived experiences’ and uncover their understanding of rootedness and fear of displacement. Needless to say, the central concern of this book remains the conviction to “de-museumise” (for wont of a better word) cultures in a sincere bid to avoid stereotyping and creation of a clichéd picture gallery. Response to the present are problematized with the caveat that though tensions exist within indigenous research circles due to lack of authentic theories, it is worthwhile to advance the view that, at its core, such research as exhibited in the papers in this volume, is designed to seek social justice, to enhance their voice and influence in society, and to explore alternative ways of understanding the world through their experiences. This volume is the second in a series designed under the dynamic field of “De-territorializing Diversities: Cultures, Literatures and Languages of the Indigenous". The first volume focuses on the cultural matrices of the indigenous and the marginalized and we hope to extend the series by bringing out a third collection in the broad area of the Indigenous and the Popular in 2015.
