We are seeking contributors for a special journal issue on the topic of "American Literature after Postmodernism."
Much recent critical debate has focused on the aftermath of postmodernism. For many critics the question of 'what comes next' is the most pressing concern regarding contemporary American literature. What, if anything, distinguishes fictions of the very late twentieth and early twenty-first century from those canonical postmodernist fictions produced prior to 1990, and what is the import of these differences? The articles we are collecting for this special issue will address these questions, via critical engagements with exemplary authors and texts.
