In this essay I intend to pursue a comparative reading of three postcolonial texts – in their intertextual and counter-canonical relationship with Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis (1915) – that deal with the ethics, but also the aesthetics, of the relationship between humans and animals. By doing so, and with the help of the Kafkian critical apparat...

Amitav Ghosh’s second novel, The Shadow Lines (1988), was notoriously conceived in 1984, in the aftermath of Indira Gandhi’s assassination, when Delhi was upturned by bloodthirsty mobs that attacked the Sikh community killing, raping, and looting.

Dieser Beitrag ist als Antwort auf jene Fragen gedacht, die das Konzept dieses Sammelbandes aufwirft. Der Titel „Narrative der Deponie“ bezieht sich auf die Materialität weggeworfener Dinge: wie sie gesammelt und verwendet, wiederverwendet und entsorgt werden. Im Folgenden lasse ich die materielle Dimension etwas beiseite, um mich auf solche Narrat...

Megadams are among the controlling factors not only as far as distribution of water is concerned, but also as far as the mere life of people is concerned. To control water mean...

What is interesting to tackle here is its aestheticisation in a photo-book which presents itself as ‘image-text’ (Mitchel, Stafford), Bombay/Mumbai. Immersions (2013). N...
