Race, Gender and Cultural Hegemony in Kiran Desai’s The Inheritance of Loss By Azmin C

Abstract

Kiran Desai’s Man Booker Prize winning novel, The Inheritance of Loss presents a mega narrative of migration patterns, resistance and resolution, class, gender and ethnic conflicts. The novel captures as well the psychological impact the colonisation has invested upon the colonised. Globalisation, in its new form of colonisation, has a far reaching effect resulting in class, racial and gender prejudice. The paper proposes to discuss the issues of race, gender and cultural hegemony. The paper shall also relate these three themes in connection with different scenario and how power is unknowingly incorporated within.

Keywords: Globalisation, Power, Race, Gender, Culture, Hegemony.
