[Deadline Extended] A Special Issue of The Global South (Fall 2021) - Contextualizing the Anglophone Novel

Since the 1980s, when the Jameson-Ahmad debate over how to read literatures putatively labeled as “third-world” and the notion of empire writing back to European literary traditions held sway in postcolonial studies, new contexts and ways of reading postcolonial and Anglophone literatures have been introduced and taken up. John J. Su’s Imagination and the Contemporary Novel (2011) and Mrinalini Chakrovorty’s In Stereotype (2014), for example, demonstrate that analyzing aesthetic and fictional representations of life in postcolonial realities brings into light the transnational aspect of contemporary literary production and the global marketplace with Anglo-American tastes and trends, both of which require further contextual consideration.
