Dalit Writings in India and Black Writings in Africa have each been unique genres of writing, highlighting the defining role of caste and race respectively in the evolution of their coming of age separately. Yet on closer scrutiny, as this significant anthology of essays by renowned scholars shows, the uniqueness of either literary experience lends itself to a meaningful comparison with the other not only in terms master/servant socio-political paradigm but also in terms of the theoretical formulations underlying both as also in the choice of genres like the autobiography for creative expression.

The Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla, organised a national seminar on Black and Dalit Writings . The seminar discussed various issues such as the literary discourse and its universality, western writings and their specific social and cultural contexts, Dalit poetry as social texts, South African literature, Black Canadian and Dalit literature, and Dalit women etc.

The proceedings of the seminar are published here under the title Writing Black: Writing Dalit which are interesting essays in Black African and Dalit Indian writings.
