South Asian Popular and Pulp Fiction Collection

The UT Libraries are developing a collection of popular and pulp fiction in the regional languages of South Asia. These novels, novellas and serialized stories help us challenge what qualifies as “worthy” both in terms of style and substance while also providing a unique lens through which themes of gender, sexuality, caste & religion, authority can be explored.  Beyond literary content, the graphic covers are also of great interest.
