Genres and Historicity : Text, Cotext, Context

Monday, December 28, 2009 - 6:18am
Department of English, University of Bucharest, Romania

In the last few decades, the culturalist approach to literature has been an unavoidable and incontestable fact. The text – cotext – context relatedness in cultural-historical embeddedness is now a current measure of identity in matters literary and cultural. Indeed, the full historicity of the emergence, growth and establishment of such basic categories as writing and reading, representation, style, narrative, author and authority, canon and canonization, literary history and criticism, or, indeed, genres and generic identity have been uninterruptedly on the professional agenda. They are still at the head of heated debates, act as catalysts of intellectual endeavours and fertilize academic events geared on the same or similar topics.
