Finally done reading these. Thought I’d mention them in case some of you are interested in studying postcolonial theory and related gender issues. My brain feels beaten to pulp - the arguments and analyses present in these books and articles were intense, to say the least. Here’s a short list.

- Naheed Hasnat. “Being ‘Amreekan’: Fried Chicken versus Chicken Tikka.”
- Lubna Chaudhry. “’We Are Graceful Swans Who Can Also Be Crows’: Hybrid Identities of Pakistani Muslim Women.”
- Surina Khan. “Sexual Exiles.”
- Naheed Islam. “Naming Desire, Shaping Identity: Tracing the Experiences of Indian Lesbians in the United States.”
- Manisha Roy. “Mothers and Daughters in Indian-American Families: A Failed Communication?”
- Sayantani DasGupta and Shamita Das Dasgupta. “Sex, Lies, and Women’s Lives: An Intergenerational Dialogue.”
- Rinita Mazamdur. “Marital Rape: Some Ethical and Cultural Consideration.”
- Satya P. Krishnan, Malahal Baig-Amin, Louisa Gilbert, Nabila El-Bassel, and Anne Waters. “Lifting the Veil of Secrecy: Domestic Violence Against South Asian Women in the United States.”
