Time and context is everything.

Dr Mridula Nath Chakraborty

Deputy Director, Monash Asia Institute

About Me

Moving across three continents, from India to Canada and now to Australia, has impressed upon me the critical importance of place and context in any definitional categorisation, theoretical discussion or communitarian involvement. I am an academic now and passionately committed to the way the Humanities make a difference to our society, philosophy and value systems.


Trained in a classical English literary canon at Delhi University, India, my research interests now include postcolonial literatures, literatures of the Indian subcontinent in English and in translation, translation theory and practice, studies in nationalism, feminisms and diasporas, public intellectuals, identity politics, culinary cultures, global Englishes and Bombay cinema.
