No Man's Land: Exploring South Asianness

South Asianness: new nationality or convenient catch all?

The term has achieved wide currency today - often for the sake of political expedience - but it is hotly disputed within the diaspora as well as the regions themselves.

Is 'South Asianness' a diverse and resilient state of being or just 'Indianness' in disguise? Sunil Khilnani (author of The Idea of India) headlines a one-day symposium examining the origin, development and relevance of the term.
