When Polonius, in the second act of Hamlet, announces the theater company as the "best actors in the world, either for tragedy, comedy, history, pastoral, pastoral-comical, historical-pastoral, tragical-historical, tragical-comical-historical-pastoral, scene individable, or poem unlimited," he points to several problems that have pervaded scholarship on poetry and genre.

This roundtable examines the locations, terminologies and methodologies that shape the oceanic turn in contemporary American literary studies. The recent twentieth anniversary of Paul Gilroy's The Black Atlantic reminds us that an oceanic rather than a national framework has influenced the direction of literary and cultural studies for the last two decades. During this time studies of American, British, and African Diasporic literature have taken a decidedly oceanic turn. Current scholarship reflects renewed interest in the impact of the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans on the creation of extra-national literary imaginaries. Yet, despite what we might consider a degree of academic canonization, the oceanic turn remains as slippery as it is suggestive.
