Diaspora Literature Essay Questions

Your browser is not secure

You're seeing this page because your web browser tried to connect to Warwick's website with insecure settings. Please upgrade your web browser.

The TLS 1.0 encryption protocol is disabled across the University's web services. Disabling TLS 1.0 prevents it from being used to access Warwick websites via an insecure web browser or application. We've made this change to keep the University's websites safe and secure.

What do I need to do?

When accessing websites using a web browser, ensure you use the latest available version of the browser – whether that is Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari or another browser. Using the latest version keeps you safe online because you're using the most up-to-date security settings.

Why is this happening?

Although TLS 1.0, when configured properly, has no known security vulnerabilities, newer protocols are designed better to address the potential for new vulnerabilities.

The PCI Data Security Standard 3.1 recommends disabling “early TLS”:

“SSL and early TLS are not considered strong cryptography and cannot be used as a security control after June 30, 2016 [without a mitigation strategy for disabling it before June 2018].


The best response is to disable SSL entirely and migrate to a more modern encryption protocol, which at the time of publication is a minimum of TLS v1.1, although entities are strongly encouraged to consider TLS v1.2.”

We need to be PCI-compliant to take online payments at the University. It is not sufficient to merely disable TLS 1.0 on our transaction tracking system as the requirement extends to any system that initiates a payment, including car parking, printer credits, the Warwick website, etc.

As the response above suggests, there are many distinguished writers belonging to the Indian diaspora. In order to write an essay on the topic, you need to narrow your subject matter. There are several ways you could narrow your focus:

Chronological: you could write an essay about the origins of Indian diaspora literature or a specific period within it.

Linguistic: Although much diaspora literature is in English, you could look at the decisions of diaspora writers to write in the languages of the countries to which they migrated or whether to use Indian dialects.

Ethnic/caste: You could choose a focus on a regional tradition, such as the Punjabi diaspora, or a caste one -- a great deal has been published about dalit literature.

Region: How does the Indian diaspora literature from Africa compare with that in Canada? The US? Britain? Could you focus on one area or region?

Religion: Another way to narrow focus is to choose a religious tradition -- e.g. the Indian Islamic diaspora.

Overall, for a coherent essay, you might want to find one theme that seems to predominate in one particular type of Indian diaspora literature and make that your focus.
