The Blind Writer: A Reading
04/27/2015
4:30 PM
6:00 PM
Professor Sameer Pandya, Department of Asian American Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara, will read selections from his first collection, The Blind Writer: Stories and a Novella, which follows the lives of first- and second-generation Indian Americans living in contemporary California. The characters share a similar sensibility: a sense that immigration is a distant memory, yet an experience that continues to shape the decisions they make in subtle and surprising ways as they go about the complicated business of everyday living.

Pandya's teaching and writing interests are located at the cross section between South Asian Studies and Asian American Studies and he specializes on South Asian literature, postcolonial and literary theory, and modernism. Pandya's writing includes short stories published in Narrative Magazine, Other Voices, and Epiphany.  At Miller-McCune.com, he writes the Research of Culture blog and has published a series of articles on topics ranging from the financial crisis on college campuses and effects of the recession on contemporary masculinity, to the economics of professional sports.

Following the lecture, a reception will take place in the Science Center 199 Lobby. The lecture and reception are sponsored by the Genevieve Ching-Wen Lee '96 Memorial Fund.
