MEDIA REVIEWS
"Lively, smart, compelling, this book reclaims and redefines cosmopolitanism in a wide range of periods and places. Its first-rate essays will be of keen interest to anyone grappling with questions of transnational and intercultural experience."
-Jahan Ramazani, author of "The Hybrid Muse: Postcolonial Poetry in English
""Cosmopolitan Geographies suggests that the geographical diversity as well as the long history of 'cosmopolitanism' is absolutely vital for imagining a non-ethnocentric international humanism today. The essays in this important volume bring together a rich variety of historical contexts, literary practices, and political imperatives in order to provoke us to rethink the relationship between national cultures and internationalism, and between cultural difference and universalism."
-Ania Loomba, Professor of English, University of Illinois and author of "Colonialism/Postcolonialism
