   Title = {The Goddess and the Nation: Mapping Mother
             India},
   Publisher = {Duke University Press},
   Year = {2010},
   Abstract = {From the cover copy: Making the case for a new kind of
             visual history, The Goddess and the Nation charts the
             pictorial life and career of Bharat Mata, “Mother
             India,” the Indian nation imagined as mother/goddess,
             embodiment of national territory, and unifying symbol for
             the country’s diverse communities. Soon after her
             appearance in the late nineteenth century, artists, both
             famous and amateur, began to picture her in various media,
             incorporating the map of India into her visual persona. The
             images they produced enabled patriotic men and women in a
             heterogeneous population to collectively visualize India,
             affectively identify with it, and even become willing to
             surrender their lives for it. Filled with illustrations,
             including 100 in color, The Goddess and the Nation draws on
             visual studies, gender studies, and the history of
             cartography to offer a rigorous analysis of Mother India’s
             appearance in painting, print, poster art, and pictures from
             the late nineteenth century to the present. By exploring the
             mutual entanglement of the scientifically mapped image of
             India and a new (Hindu) mother/goddess, Sumathi Ramaswamy
             reveals Mother India as a figure who relies on the British
             colonial mapped image of her dominion to distinguish her
             from the other goddesses of India, and to guarantee her
             novel status as embodiment, sign, and symbol of national
             territory. Providing an exemplary critique of ideologies of
             gender and the science of cartography, Ramaswamy
             demonstrates that images do not merely reflect history; they
             actively make it. In The Goddess and the Nation, she teaches
             us about pictorial ways of learning the form of the nation,
             of how to live with it—and ultimately to die for
             it.},

@book{fds306104,
   Title = {Barefoot across the Nation: Maqbool Fida Husain and the Idea
             of India},
   Publisher = {Routledge},
   Editor = {Ramaswamy, S},
   Year = {2010},
   Abstract = {Barefoot across the Nation is the first inter-disciplinary
             effort to engage with the work and recent travails of
             Maqbool Fida Husain, arguably his country’s most
             celebrated modernist, whose professional life is intimately
             entangled with and revelatory of the complicated career of
             independent India as a democratic, secular, and multi-ethnic
             nation. The volume provides a multi-faceted engagement with
             Husain’s art and persona from a cross-section of
             disciplinary positions; it also crosses the bounds of
             academia to forge a bridge with activist interventions so
             vital to the issues of spectatorship, identity and
             creativity that cluster around the biographical and artistic
             trajectory of M.F. Husain. The ostensibly artist-centred
             approach of the book works as an effective entry point into
             an entire gamut of themes and questions about modernism,
             visual practice, history, ethics and the many layers and
             textures of identity. For more than half a century—and
             across thousands of canvases—Husain has painted
             individuals and objects, events and incidents that offer an
             astonishing visual chronicle of independent India’s many
             engagements with its complicated past and equally fraught
             modernity in a signature style that is simultaneously
             “Indian” and “global.” Even as he has done this, his
             career and work have witnessed—and in turn actively
             fostered—the meteoric rise to visibility of modern Indian
             art in international markets. Yet, what vision of his
             country is reflected on his canvases, and what does it tell
             us about both the old India of centuries past that Husain so
             evocatively tries to engage, and the new India of the global
             era? “My life’s work is my statement,” Husain has
             himself declared. The fourteen essays of this volume written
             by distinguished scholars from across the globe, scrutinise
             the artistic statement Husain has delivered on self, nation
             and community over the years, as well as understand some of
             the ways in which he has engaged with India—insightfully,
             reverentially, playfully, but also melancholically. In turn,
             we also consider how India has responded to Husain: with
             affection and admiration bordering on adulation, but also
             with hostility and outright rejection in recent
             times.},

@book{fds241829,
   Author = {Ramaswamy, S},
   Title = {The lost land of Lemuria: Fabulous geographies, catastrophic
             histories},
   Pages = {1-334},
   Publisher = {Univ of California Press},
   Year = {2004},
   Month = {September},
   ISBN = {9780520244405},
   Abstract = {© by The Regents of the University of California. All
             rights reserved. During the nineteenth century, Lemuria was
             imagined as a land that once bridged India and Africa but
             disappeared into the ocean millennia ago, much like
             Atlantis. A sustained meditation on a lost place from a lost
             time, this elegantly written book is the first to explore
             Lemuria's incarnations across cultures, from Victorian-era
             science to Euro-American occultism to colonial and
             postcolonial India. The Lost Land of Lemuria widens into a
             provocative exploration of the poetics and politics of loss
             to consider how this sentiment manifests itself in a
             fascination with vanished homelands, hidden civilizations,
             and forgotten peoples. More than a consideration of
             nostalgia, it shows how ideas once entertained but later
             discarded in the metropole can travel to the periphery-and
             can be appropriated by those seeking to construct a
             meaningful world within the disenchantment of modernity.
             Sumathi Ramaswamy ultimately reveals how loss itself has
             become a condition of modernity, compelling us to rethink
             the politics of imagination and creativity in our
             day.},

             Asia, and why now? These are among the questions at the
             forefront of this special issue whose contributors explore
             charitable practices and philanthropic transformations in
             diverse historical and cultural contexts across the
             colonial/post-colonial divide at a time when trade
             liberalization, the transformation of state welfare-ism, and
             the consolidation of a global economy has led to a deepening
             of neo-liberal regimes across the region as well as
             political and religious fundamentalisms. We also write at a
             time when non-governmental organizations have proliferated
             across the region, as has the discourse regarding
             humanitarian aid for a diverse range of development
             projects. This special issue, then, seeks to throw light on
             what is new and different, and what persists in the context
             of the region's long and well-established traditions of
             giving. Who gives and toward what purposes and with what
             stated intentions? How have acts of giving changed over time
             and across cultural, religious, and regional complexes? What
             are the institutional frameworks within which specifically
             local, national and regional mechanisms and instruments of
             giving intersect with global practices? How do the economic
             and financial incentives interact with ethical and affective
             imperatives to give?</jats:p>},

   Abstract = {© CambridgeUniversity Press 2018. This article explores the
             ways in which Pachaiyappa Mudaliar (1754?-1794) has been
             panegyrized as the quintessential benefactor of our times in
             Tamil prose, poetry, and pictures over the course of the
             past century and a half. In the bureaucratic and legal
             documents of the colonial state, he appears as a rapacious
             moneylender and behind-The-scenes wheeler-dealer, amember of
             that hated class of 'Madras dubashes', a 'most diabolical
             race of men'. In contrast, Tamil memory work since at least
             the 1840s has differently recalled this shadowy
             eighteenthcentury man as a selfless philanthropist whose
             vast wealth financed some of the earliest educational
             institutions in the Madras Presidency. I track the
             posthumous fate of Pachaiyappa's bequest to argue that even
             as the founding of the public trust and its educational
             philanthropy departed radically from his willed intentions,
             a new complex of living, dying, and giving for the sake of
             native education was put in place in the Tamil country in
             the age of colonial capital and pedagogic
             modernity.},

   Abstract = {© 2017 Third Text. In 2010, the author published a book
             titled The Goddess and the Nation: Mapping Mother India
             (Duke University Press) in which she demonstrated how the
             deified body of Mother India and the geo-body of India –
             as iconised by the outline map – are put to work over the
             course of the long twentieth century by India's ‘barefoot
             cartographers’ to transform the nation-space into a sacred
             pastoral landscape worth living and dying for. In this
             article, Ramaswamy takes up for consideration ten contrary
             watercolors also featuring the map of India that make up
             Atul Dodiya’s series Tearscape (2001), Dodiya lives and
             works in Mumbai. Produced at the beginning of a new century,
             these works evacuate the glorious goddess from her
             occupation of the map of India, and populate it instead with
             abject figures that disenchant, even desecrate, the national
             geo-body. What is dared in transforming thus the map of the
             nation from a repository of pastoral plenitude into the
             dystopian address of the (female) abject? And to what end
             does Dodiya undertake such a risky maneuver, fifty years
             after the nation's geo-body was created out of the
             conflagration that was the Partition of India?.},

             southern India during the middle decades of this century.
             The movement, which was principally sponsored by Dravidian
             and Tamil nationalists, presented the Hindi language to the
             Tamil public as a bloody demoness, a scheming maid, a
             tempting whore, and a false mother out to destroy the Tamil
             language. The paper argues for the significance of the
             gendering of languages in nationalist mobilizations and
             activities. © Walter de Gruyter.},

   Abstract = {This essay raises the language question in its relationship
             to the wider problematic of the nationalization of pasts by
             focusing on the curious and puzzling status accorded to
             Sanskrit in the nationalization of the Indian past in this
             century. I use the words 'curious' and 'puzzling'
             deliberately, for the Sanskrit issue unsettles many
             well-entrenched assumptions about language and nationalism
             that circulate in scholarly circles and popular imagination.
             Just as crucially, Sankrist's (mis)adventures in the past
             century or so, draw our attention to the troubling
             linguistic turns taken by the nationalization process in
             India with its disquieting complicity with colonial
             categories and certitudes. The concerns of this paper have
             thus been shaped by three related issues pertaining to
             language, nationalism, and modernity.},

   Abstract = {Focused on the colonial school in the British India as the
             principal site for disciplined encounters between the
             learning child and the terrestrial globe as a scientific
             instrument, this essay considers the work of Geography in
             transforming young Indians into colonized but enlightened
             subjects over the course of the 19th century, even as it is
             instrumental in precipitating “modern Earth” as the
             subject of intent study. As I follow the pedagogic travels
             of the globe across the subcontinent, I ask why almost the
             very first issue with which the native child was confronted
             when beginning on this novel enterprise of a geographical
             education was the shape of the earth. Why did the colonial
             teacher of any ilk feel compelled to convince the Indian
             child, again and repeatedly, about terrestrial sphericity?
             And what is this knowledge of Earth’s sphericity pitched
             against? Not least, I take up three life-stories marked by
             significant “global” encounters to show that there is no
             single path to the formation of a planetary consciousness
             centered on a modern Earth brought into view through an
             Enlightened encounter with its miniaturized
