About Me

Professor in English at the Department of English, University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka. My academic and research lie in the areas of gender, dispossession, the displaced, and the fraught question of nation, Sri Lankan literatures, translation and performance, film studies. I teach in the areas of early modern English literature including Shakespeare, Critical Theory, modern comparative literature, and in performance and film studies. An award winning film maker, performer and play wright, poet and academic, my creative work emphasizes the idiom of conversation and colloquiality, while being experiments in form and style. I have performed widely, namely Delhi, New York, London, Melbourne, Zurich and nationally in many parts of the country. In 2011 I was awarded the Premchand Fellowship by the Sahithya Akademi of India. I am a militant activist of the cause of free education in Sri Lanka.
