More than 4 weeks availability
In Humanitarian Identity and the Political Sublime, Ashmita Khasnabish unites Amartya Sen's concept of pluralistic identity with Sri Aurobindo's philosophy of the "religion of human unity," where the European and Western philosophy of Enlightenment meets the East/India/Bengali intellectual and spiritual thought. The resulting neo-Enlightenment philosophy of identity incorporates Teresa Brennan's theory of the "transmission of affect" and the Relational Cultural Theory, culminating in a discussion of the postcolonial literary texts of Rushdie and Kincaid.
Ashmita Khasnabish was a visiting scholar at the Pembroke Center for Teaching and Research on Women at Brown University and a visiting research associate at the Women's Studies Research Center at Brandeis University. She is currently a lecturer in the College of General Studies at Boston University.
