Science Fiction and Indian Women Writers Exploring Radical Potentials by Urvashi Kuhad 9780367511067 (Hardback, 2021). Science fiction as the literature of fantasy goes beyond the mundane to ask what if things were different from the way they are. It often challenges the real, builds on imagination, does not limit the human, and encourages readers to think beyond their social and cultural conditioning. This book presents a systematic study of Indian Women's Science Fiction. It critically analyses the works of Rokeya Shekhawat Hossein, Manjula Padmanabhan, Priya Sarukkai Chabria and Vandana Singh.The author not only looks at the evolution of science fiction writing in India, but also discusses the use of innovations and unique themes; science fiction in different Indian languages; the literary, political, and educational activism of the women writers; and, eco-feminism and the idea of cloning in writing to argue that this genre could be looked at as representation of freedom of expression and radical literature. First of its kind, this volume will be useful for scholars and researchers of English literature, Indian literature, science and technology studies, women's and gender studies, comparative literature and cultural studies.
