Patrick Eisenlohr - Little India: Diaspora, Time, and Ethnolinguistic Belonging in Hindu Mauritius
University of California Press | 2007 | ISBN: 0520248805 | Pages: 341 | PDF | 1.15 MB

Little India is a rich historical and ethnographic examination of a fascinating example of linguistic plurality on the island of Mauritius, where more than two-thirds of the population is of Indian ancestry. Patrick Eisenlohr's groundbreaking study focuses on the formation of diaspora as mediated through the cultural phenomenon of Indian ancestral languages–principally Hindi, which is used primarily in religious contexts. Eisenlohr emphasizes the variety of cultural practices that construct and transform boundaries in communities in diaspora and illustrates different modes of experiencing the temporal relationships between diaspora and homeland.
