The essays in this vibrant collection, selected from the 2007 Tamil Studies Conference, range across a number of disciplines to address issues central to contemporary Tamil Studies. Contributions deliberately encompass multiple areas of inquiry — such as history, culture, religion, and gender — and divergent perspectives, in order to allow for a meaningful exchange of ideas relevant to Tamil identity. With all its diversity, New Demarcations is bound together by a common interest in the politics of identity as it relates to Tamil Studies.
