Book Title: Commerce with the Universe: Africa, India and the Afrasian Imagination

Author: Gaurav Desai

Book Description:

Gaurav Desai’s work in bridging African literary studies and Postcolonial studies is of great interest to me. His innovative theory of an “Afrasian imagination” is an important development in South-South comparative scholarship, and his concept of Oceanic narration offers a model for studies of South Africa and the connections between Atlantic and Indian Ocean studies.
