Crossing borders is a volume of interdisciplinary essays on the paradigm of borders in African American literature, multi-ethnic U.S. studies and South Asian studies. Written by established and mid-career scholars from across the world, the essays employ a variety of approaches to the idea of “border crossings” and represent important contributions to the discourses on modernity, diasporic mobility, populism, migration, exile, sub-nation, trans-nation, as well as the formation of nationalities, communities and identities. Borders, in these contexts, signify social and national inequities and hierarchies and also the ways to challenge and transgress entrenched barriers sanctioned by habit, custom and law. The volume also honours and celebrates the life and work of Amritjit Singh as a teacher, mentor, author, scholar and editor.
