About the Author

Vilashini Cooppan is Associate Professor of Literature at the University of California, Santa Cruz.


"Vilashini Cooppan's Worlds Within: National Narratives and Global Connections in Postcolonial Writing offers a timely and expansive study of the construct of the nation that engages theoretical debates at the heart of postcolonial studies and comparative literature ... Worlds Within offers a compelling investigation of how a series of highly influential theorists and writers have imagined the nation that, moreover, attests to the enduring profitability of psychoanalysis as a critical apparatus for comprehending the mechanisms of globalization." - Elizabeth S. Anker, Comparative Literature Studies "This is a book for students of English, and academics ... This is a great addition to the role of postcolonial narratives and their place in society." - Devin Winter, San Francisco Book Review "The author observes that as a phantasmal projection, nationalism remains a fundamental princeiple for self-identification, working alternatively as a force of regulation and of resistance against hegemonies." - K. M. Kapanga Choice "Worlds Within takes the risk of bringing psychoanalytical dimensions to the study of nationalism and postcoloniality - a risk I applaud - without compromising in the least either the excavating insights of social analysis or the nuanced precision of literary reading. It is a fine, bracing work, self-assured and learned, analytical and intuitive - a book that opens further the horizon of criticism." - Stathis Gourgouris, Columbia University "Worlds Within is beautifully written, wonderfully articulate, containing both recollection and discovery. It is a major contribution to work in postcolonial studies, comparative literature, and the field of humanities broadly conceived." - Robert Barsky, Vanderbilt University
