Bio: Preetha Mani is Assistant Professor of South Asian Literatures at Rutgers University. Her research and teaching interests include modern Hindi, Tamil, and Indian literatures; South Asian feminisms; women’s writing; world literature; translation studies; realisms and modernisms; and postcolonial studies. Her forthcoming book explores twentieth-century short story writing in Hindi and Tamil to propose a view of Indian literature as a field of comparative literature that is comprised of mutually imbricated local, regional, national, and global processes of literary canonization.
