Published 2005 .
Written in English.

About the Book

This work investigates the subject formation among a select group of individuals: Indo-Guyanese women who were raised in white small towns in South Western Ontario. The author investigates how notions of "the Indian", as a "colonial ideological reflex", are reproduced in the small town. The five participants in this study offer historical accounts of migration, custom, and heritage that shape the textual repertoire available to these young women. The author raises three continuous threads within this project. First, she investigates how memory work causes us to question how the past is remembered and represented. Secondly, she analyses how members of the Indian Diaspora are constructed as socially invisible and hypervisible as a result of dominant discourses. Finally, an underlying goal within this project seeks to dismantle essentialist notions of the Indian woman.
