In 2000, Aravamudan received the Modern Language Association's prestigious prize for an outstanding first book for the publication of Tropicopolitans: Colonialism and Agency, 1688-1804 (Duke University Press, 1999). The work was particularly acclaimed for its inventive readings of eighteenth-century works of literature in light of postcolonial theories and concerns. Aravamudan's second book, Guru English: South Asian Religion in a Cosmopolitan Language (Princeton University Press, 2005; Penguin India, 2007), was similarly recognized for its expansive treatment of topics ranging from Romanticorientalism to Deepak Chopra, as well as for its tracing of the complex circuits via which knowledge about South Asian religion was produced. In his third book, Enlightenment Orientalism: Resisting the Rise of the Novel (Chicago University Press, 2012), Aravamudan considered manifestations of orientalism during the eighteenth century. Aravamudan further challenged literary critics to move beyond the Anglocentrism of typical histories of the novel by uncovering a significant body of British and French orientalist texts and their borrowings from Persian, Turkish, Arabic, Pali, and Sanskrit sources. For Enlightenment Orientalism, Aravamudan received a CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title Award, the Barbara Perkins and George Perkins Prize for the most significant contribution to the study of narrative from the International Society for the Study of Narrative, and the Oscar Kenshur Prize for the best book in eighteenth-century studies from Indiana University's Center for Eighteenth-Century Studies.
In addition to publishing the above books, Aravamudan edited a volume for the Pickering & Chatto series on Slavery, Abolition, and Emancipation: Writings in the British Romantic Period (1999). He also published an edition of William Earle's Obi; or, The History of Three-Fingered Jack (Broadview, 2005), a novel from 1800 about the legend of Jack Mansong, an escaped slave in late eighteenth-century Jamaica.
