In the “Caught in Passing” segment of Bol Hyderabad, Sandhya Ravindran, a Research Scholar in the Department of English interviewed Dr. Subhashini Kaligotla, poet of Indian diaspora and architectural historian of medieval India. Her early education and training were in engineering, and she gave up a successful career in the telecom industry to pursue first an MFA in Creative Writing and then a PhD in Art History, earning both degrees from Columbia University (in 2006 and 2015 respectively). She is also the recipient of a Full Bright Fellowship to India for Literary Translation. Her writing projects were also supported by Fellowships from Hedgebrook, Kundiman and Sanskrit Kendra (New Delhi). Her poems have appeared in such journals as The Caravan, Drunken Boat, The Literary Review, New England Review, and Western Humanities Review, and in anthologies of poetry from India and the diaspora, most notably 60 Indian Poets (Penguin India, 2008), The Bloodaxe Book of Contemporary Indian Poets (Bloodaxe), and Indivisible: An Anthology of Contemporary South Asian American Poetry (U. of Arkansas). As editor, she curated the poetry content of two US-distributed print journals—Columbia: A Journal of Literature & Art and Catamaran—featuring Asian American poets and South Asian poetry in English and in English translation.
Her debut collection of poetry, Bird of the Indian Subcontinent was released in January 2018. She talked on various topics of interest including her research areas such as visual arts, architecture and poetry. She shared her experiences as a diasporic writer/poet and how her travels around Europe and America influenced her writings.
