Research output: Contribution to journalLetterpeer-review

1 Scopus citations


This commentary identifies and discusses the three issues that have driven the turn to the term Global Anglophone in literary studies: the demand by institutions for tags that signal diversity of bodies and forms of knowledge; the desire for a new descriptive term for English literatures outside Britain and North America; and the need to rethink the long history of the discipline within the cultures of the British empire. The commentary focuses on the possibilities and limits of recent debates on Global Anglophone literature in the institutional politics of North American universities.
