Sruthi Vinayan holds her Doctoral degree in English Literature from Indian Institute of Technology Madras. Her PhD thesis titled “Woman Narratives and Colonial Modernity in Kerala: A Critique of the Late Nineteenth and Early Twentieth Century Literary and Cultural Discourses” explores the narrativisation of the “ideal Malayali woman” in the literary and cultural discourses. She has a Master’s degree in English and Comparative Literature from Pondicherry University.
Her research interests include literary and cultural narratives of the early twentieth century Kerala, literary historiography and cultural memory. Her current research focuses on the nexus between literary history and cultural memory and how the process of selective appropriation of events into memory takes place through literary narratives. She has published research papers in Journal of Postcolonial Writing and Journal of English Language Teachers’ Interaction Forum.
