Abstract or description

As the world changes and a new global order appears on the horizon, the scene of writing in English from erstwhile British postcolonial nations is alive with innovation and variety. In line with new global opportunities and growing economies, English-speaking nations around the world are forging new identities, and living new times and experiences. Beyond The Postcolonial interrogates the current state of emerging writing in English from four African countries, and from Malaysia, Singapore and India, through fieldwork and textual analysis. The book challenges the prevailing orthodoxy of postcolonial literary studies and offers unique, interdisciplinary enquiry into the field of world literature in English. With a wide range of writers and material mostly unknown in the UK and US, including interviews with writers, publishers, and academics in the field, this volume promises its readers a thorough revisioning of writing in English, bringing the reader up-to-date with current trends, modes of writing and an abundance of voices of English writing from around the world.
