Ett samtal mellan Amrita Ghosh och Nitasha Kaul.
Akademikern, poeten och författaren Nitasha Kauls debutroman ”Residue” (Rupa/Rainlight) var den första romanen på engelska skriven av en kashmirisk kvinna. Nominerad för Man Asian Literary Prize, romanen sågs som "ett minnes testamente av ett konfliktfyllt arv" (www.nitashakaul. se). Hon beskriver sin nya roman ”Future Tense” (Harper Collins) så här: "Vad händer med stora drömmar på mindre dukar som ytterligare krymps av konfliktens politik? Karaktärerna i romanen har ärvt Kashmirs många tragedier och motsägelser. Mina karaktärers vägar korsas och divergerar mot den faktiska och fiktiva bakgrunden av det samtida Kashmir, med dess vänskap, svek, översvämningar, uppror och mänskliga sköldar. Min roman ”Future Tense” är en del av mitt livsverk att föra vidare historier och berättelser om de många olika verkliga och föreställda Kashmir som finns på kartor, i hjärtan, i folkets minnen. Detta är en roman som föddes efter upproret 2016 och publicerades efter Kashmir förlorat sitt självstyre i 2019."
Amrita Ghosh arbetar med ett postdoktoralt projekt om samtida litteratur, filmer och visuella texter om och från Kashmir. Hennes monografi med titeln "Kashmir's Necropolis: New Literature and Visual Texts" kommer utges nästa år.
I den här panelen talar Amrita Ghosh med Nitasha Kaul om hennes roman ”Future Tense” och betydelsen av Kashmir i hennes författarskap som kvinnlig och feministisk författare.
