PhD thesis. There is considerable agreement that the publication of Edward W. Said's Orientalism in inaugurated the field known as "postcolonial studies. Though best known for his translations from the Sanskrit and Pali, Mascaro was also a prolific letter-writer whose letters, manuscripts, diaries and notebooks are preserved in three different archives.

The principal motivation for pm-suing this PhD project lies in the realization that Mascaro has never received any critical attention in England and that an assessment of his work can contribute to broaden the terms of the debate over the question of Orientalism and Western appropriations of non-European cultures.

The thesis is divided into five chapters, preceded by a general introduction and followed by a short conclusion. The first chapter examines the period Mascaro spend as vice-principal of a Hindu college in the British colony of Ceylon; the second studies Mascaro's Orientalist conceptions of Indian culture; the third gives an overview of Western and Indian inteipretations of the Bhagavad Gita and analyses Mascaro's reading of the text within this larger hermeneutical enterprise; the fourth presents a theoretical and practical study of Mascaro's translation of the Gita; the fifth and last chapter covers several subjects, but is mainly concerned with Mascaro's religious viewpoint and his involvement in the inter-faith dialogue.

Although the association of Orientalism with Western colonial aspirations does not seem evident in the case of a Catalan-speaking Orientalist, Mascaro's writings attest to the universalist tendencies of Orientalism and are pail of this hegemonic European movement.

BRAZEN FEMME QUEERING FEMININITY PDF

Juan MascarĂ³

Of the three translations of the Bhagavad Gita on this site, this is my personal favorite. It is closest to the old hard bound copy by Annie Besant, written in archaic English, that I carried for years, everywhere I went and if I had this volume at that time I think I would have loved the Gita all the more. What is common to both versions is that they are clear translations unadorned by commentary. They present the beauty and insight of this deep spiritual text in a way that let's the reader experience it with fresh eyes, like they are discovering the Gita, not studying it. My teacher often said that there are passages in the scriptures that you will ponder for years and then one day, when the meaning becomes clear you have an "aha! This translation, gives you room to generate your own beautiful understanding of this great work, immediately for some parts and later on with others. There is some commentary at the front of the book where you can learn what others got out of the Gita as well as much about the history of Indian spiritual literature and Indian history.
