Kerala Scholars Network / Update 20 – Ala–A Kerala Studies Blog

Aparna Vincent, PhD (Co-editor, Ala),
Kalady (Ernakulam District)

Ala’s 23nd issue is out now and features two articles:

  • In the first of a two-part series, J. Devika writes about the life of Saraswathi Amma, her contributions to feminist literature in early modern Kerala, and the need to translate her works in the context of today’s political climate in Kerala—and indeed—in India.
  • Priya Menon writes about the different dimensions of an emerging genre of ‘petrofiction’ in Keralan literature, in the context of emigration from Kerala to the Gulf countries.
