Title: Ethnicity in Literature: A Study of the Select Short Fiction of Ireland and Kashmir.
Author: Abid Ahmad (Scholar); Mohammad Aslam (Guide)
Abstract: Ethnic literature is the body of written works by people from a distinctive culture, language, or religion. Afro Caribbean and African writers—Aime Cesaire, Frantz Fanon, Chinua Achebe, for instance, have made significant contribution to the theory and practice of ethnic criticism that explores the traditions, sometimes suppressed or underground, of ethnic literary activity. They provide a critique of representations of ethnic identity as found within the majority culture. More recently, scholars like Henry Louis Gates, Toni Morrison, and Kwame Anthony Appiah have drawn attention to the problems inherent in applying theoretical models derived from Euro-centric paradigms to minority works of literature, exploring new interpretive strategies for understanding the vernacular traditions of ethnic/racial groups that have been historically marginalized by dominant cultures.
