Interviews: Aneil Rallin and Kartika Budhwar

“Along with scholars like Trinh T. Minh-ha and Susan Griffin, I want to reject the notion that academic scholarly writing has to be pedantic, or that it can’t be playful or elliptical or weird or whimsical or mixed-genre or creative. There seems to be a distrust in academia, of playfulness and creativity, it’s not seen as serious or critical or important. But, I like bringing together lots of different forms, critical writing and anecdotes and notes and analysis and snippets of conversations and fragments and juxtapositions.”

Literary theorist and author, Aneil Rallin, in conversation with SAAG Senior Editor Kartika Budhwar.
