About Events

One Day National Seminar on Exile Literature: Exploring the Indian Women Diasporic Writers organized by Department Of English And Foreign Languages, Mother Teresa Womens University College which is dated on March 20 2015 at conference Hall, Mother Teresa Women’s University. Displacement, whether forced or self-imposed, is in many ways a calamity. Yet, a Peculiar but a potent point to note is that writers in their displaced existence generally tend to excel in their work, as if the changed atmosphere acts as a stimulant or them. These writings in dislocated circumstances are often termed as “Exile Literature”. In a holistic view, the world “Exile” world include migrant writers and non-resident writers and even gallivanting writers who roam about for better Pastures to graze and fill their oeuvre. Word Literature has an abundance of writers whose writings have prospered while they were in exile. Although it would be preposterous to assume the vice-versa that exiled writers would not have prospered had they not been in exile, the fact in the former statement cannot be denied.
The effect that exile has, not on the writers work, but on the writers themselves seems apparently paradoxical at first. Exile appears both as a liberating experience as well as a shocking experience. The paradox is apparent because it is just a manifestation of the tension that keeps the strings attached and taut between the writer’s place of origin and the place of exile. Whatever may be the geographical location of the exiled writer, in the mental landscape the writer is forever enmeshed among the strings attached to poles that pull in opposite directions. The only way the writer can rescue oneself from the tautness of the enmeshing strings is by writing or by other forms of artistic expression. The relief in only a temporary condition for no writers’ work is so sharp a wedge that can snap the strings that history-makers have woven. Even if a writer consciously tries to justify one end, simultaneously, but unconsciously, there arises a longing for the other. There lies the fascination of exile literature.
