A language and a cause: Progressive politics and the literary in the fight for Punjabi in India and Pakistan


21 juin 2019 | 10h30 - 12h30

BULAC (salle RJ. 23), 65 rue des Grands Moulins 75013 Paris


This talk explores the progressive roots of modern Punjabi literature (in relation to the broader history of vernacular cultural production) through the story of Gurbax Singh "Preet Lari" and Preet Nagar, the intentional community that he founded in the 1930s in colonial Punjab.

Examination of these progressive roots will then be extended to think through the work of Ajeet Cour and Dalip Kaur Tiwana, prominent women writers in Punjab, and the articulation of women's writing within the persistent patriarchy undergirding the progressive ethos of Punjabi literature.
