This lecture debates upon the definition and function of the term, ‘identity’ and ‘culture’ leading to the argument that identity encapsulates difference while culture is a phenomenon by which decolonization occurs. The later part of the presentation reads a few select South Asian works to reveal the nature of identity and culture and the multiple levels at which it exists.
