Anand, Dibyesh (2009) Diasporic subjectivity as an ethical position. South Asian Diaspora, 1 (2). pp. 103-111. ISSN 1943-8192Full text not available from this repository.
The paper highlights some of the ways in which diasporas challenge the dominant narratives of belonging that give primacy to the bounded community of nation-states. It argues for a critical appropriation of diasporic subjectivity as an ethical position that reveals the contested and constructed nature of culture. This position requires analytical frameworks that recognise power relations behind cultural claims and allow us to appreciate the silenced and marginalised voices subsumed under the categories of diaspora and culture.
