Twenty-First Century Perspectives

About the series

Twenty-First Century Perspectives offers a series of edited collections that examine the ways in which contemporary writers have responded to global challenges, as a clamorous presence that has served to reignite the role of writer as public intellectual and the literary text as an agent of change. The series captures how contemporary literatures are producing striking works of political and ethical power, radically revising metanarratives of nation and identity while searching for original avenues of meaning in order to navigate these uncertain times. It examines the role of texts as daring reappraisals of literary tradition and innovations in form, acting as forces of transformation that – in their interrogations of the past, questioning of the present, and dreams of the future – demand a new critical vocabulary.

Editors: Kristian Shaw and Sara Upstone
