The Creation of a Cultural Middle Ground through Multiple Critiques in Anglophone Literature

AatisaShahoor, SairaAsghar Khan, ImdadUllah Khan, Shahreena.

Abstract
The research article tackles the growing tendency of diasporic writers, as well as literature
coming from Anglophone writers, to distort realities for the sake of aligning oneself with
the thought germinated by the mainstream western media against the eastern cultures in
general and those cultures that have been Islamized in particular. The literature review
section will maintain how contrasting societal realities have been depicted in diasporic and
Anglophone literature and stress upon the need of employing Cooke’s idea of multiple
critiques which allows the non-native English writers to assess the merits and demerits of
both their native and adopted cultures with close objectivity and finally create a middle
ground as a transformational healing space allowing for the incorporation of the best of
both worlds. The analysis section will depict how SurriyyaShujaQazi, a leading Pakistani
academician can generate this transformation healing space through her objective scrutiny
of both cultures and her refusal to completely blend into the western culture. Moreover, the
analysis also maintains how this technique could also help to mitigate some form the
eastern prejudices against the West.

Key words: The research article tackles the growing tendency of diasporic writers, as well as literature coming from Anglophone writers
