Reconfigurations of space in Partition novels par Sandrine Soukaï, publié le 19/09/2019
This article examines two Indian novels Clear Light of Day (1980) by Anita Desai and The Shadow Lines (1988) by Amitav Ghosh along with Burnt Shadows (2009) by Anglo-Pakistani novelist Kamila Shamsie, books written about the Partition of India that accompanied independence in 1947. Partition led to violence on an enormous scale; the exact number of people who were killed has never been ascertained, and estimates vary between one and two million. Partition also caused massive displacements of population, estimated between 12 and 18 million. This paper examines the way in which space – national, familial and communal – was divided and then reshaped by and through Partition. After discussing the fractures, ruptures and uprooting brought about by this trauma, I will consider the way in which diasporic writers devise fictional maps of memory of the past that foster exchanges across geographical borders.

Rassemblant des spécialistes d’histoire, d’histoire de l’art, d’histoire des idées, de philosophie politique et de littérature, anglicistes et non-anglicistes, dans le but de favoriser les approches croisées et d’insister sur les phénomènes d’interculturalité, ce colloque se proposait de revenir sur l’une des antithèses les plus constantes dans les études coloniales et postcoloniales de ces dernières années : celle qui opposerait, hypothétiquement, un Orient imaginaire, tout en séductions sensuelles (celui des almées, du harem, des fumoirs et des cavalcades), et, bien distinct de celui-ci, un Orient plus sérieux, vaste territoire offert aux investigations des spécialistes de l’exégèse biblique, des linguistes, des cartographes, des géographes…
