Abstract:

This book analyzes the narratives of urban, North Indian women for the diverse ways in which they construct the impact of their medium of education - Hindi, English, or a combination of both - on varied aspects of their professional and personal lives. It examines how participants reinforce or interrogate firmly entrenched power hierarchies that have long elevated English in India. Adopting a social constructionist perspective, and treating oral narratives as impacted both by local interactional contingencies and by larger social contexts, this book provides an innovative framework for the analysis of narratives told in qualitative research interviews. Stylization, mock languages, similes and metaphors, reported speech, and varied interactional cues are some of the devices used to examine the intersectionality of power and identity within participants' oral narratives. The book will be of interest to scholars and students of narrative analysis, gender and identity studies, postcolonialism, and professional identity constructions of women.
