14.2008 Refereed Research Paper: “The Representations of World Literature.” Impressions: A Bi-Annual E-Journal of English Studies, August 2008. The editorial states, “ Dr. Mukesh Williams’ guest article on “Representations of World Literature” concerns the conceptualization of universal categories in Europe in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and how these inflated categories, ranging from geo-politics to world literature, were imposed by European philosophers and writers on the rest of the world for nearly one hundred and fifty years. This is in keeping with what Anita Desai, one of the most eminent writers of fiction in India said in her acceptance speech on being conferred the Fellowship by the Sahitya Akademi. According to her some of the most lively and vital writing in English now comes from the erstwhile colonies making English a legitimately indigenous language to India.” See the following website for the actual paper: http://impressions.50webs.org/guest.htm
