Literary Materialisms addresses what has become a fundamental concern in the last decade: how do we today define literary studies as an academic discipline and literature as a relevant object of study? Avoiding unproductive proclamations, this volume unites new materialist critical thinking with a commitment to fundamental principles.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Materialism has always been philosophically problematic, and it never completely coincided with that equally problematic mode called realism. Today, however, it is not only the literary text which can be interrogated for its materialist practice, but also literary criticism and theory itself Few recent collections have been so stimulating in the multiple ways in which they develop these problems and extend their possibilities in all kinds of new dimensions. I have personally found it intellectually productive to return again and again to these essays." - Fredric Jameson, William A. Lane Professor of Comparative Literature and Romance Studies, Duke University, USA
