I teach and research contemporary South Asian literature and culture. My particular interests are in issues of translation and multilinguality in the production, consumption, study and teaching of South Asian literature. I also teach classes on British colonial literature, Caribbean fiction, contemporary postcolonial and postmodern fiction, and Bombay cinema. I am also the founder of, an online journal and forum on South Asian society and culture.
