Article excerpt

MUCH of this book was researched and written through a two-year scholarship granted by the Graduiertenförderung des Landes Hessen (Grafög) and grants provided by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the Vereinigung von Freunden und Förderern der Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main e.V., and the German Research Foundation (DFG). I am extremely grateful to Dieter Riemenschneider and Mala Pandurang, who introduced me to Indian women's writing, and to Gisela Welz for encouraging my interest in migration theory and modernity discourse. For their intellectual engagement and support, I am deeply indebted to Vera Alexander, Nadja Butt, and Claudia Duppé, who became close friends during this phase of my life. I would also like to thank my colleagues Elisabeth Bekers, Angela Hamilton, and Annika McPherson for their careful readings and critical remarks to sections of this book. I wish to express my gratitude to Michelle Miles for her diligent proof-reading, Ute John for providing the basic image for the book cover, and Gordon Collier for his support and constructive criticism throughout the editing process.
