Abstract

Abstract:

Sri Lanka has often been circumscribed by media discourses that focus on the civil war and the 2004 tsunami. This interview with Minoli Salgado, author of numerous poems, short stories, the scholarly monograph Writing Sri Lanka (2007), and the novel A Little Dust on the Eyes (2014), addresses her search for a style and language to write about these events against external simplifying narratives. Salgado also discusses the relationship between scholarly and creative writing.
