MEDIA REVIEWS

'Eloquently written and combining numerous penetrating insights into the linguistic and literary formations of the subject, this is a wide ranging, challenging and thought-provoking exploration of key issues - past and present - in 21st century English Studies world-wide.' Ronald Carter, Research Professor of Modern English Language (Emeritus Professor), University of Nottingham, UK

'Suman Gupta achieves a rare feat with this book: In addition to complicating traditional histories of philology in the Anglophone world by a comparative study of the UK, the U.S., and India, he manages to explain and critique the longevity of the empty signifier "philology" as a fascinatingly adaptive amalgam of cultural, linguistic, and literary theories and practices. Instead of an English Studies beholden to ever-new returns of an essentializing philology, Gupta proposes a reconceptualization of the field characterized by the joyous pluralism of global Englishes and a new co-disciplinary collaboration between linguistics and literary studies.' Richard Utz, Chair and Professor in the School of Literature, Media, and Communication, Georgia Institute of Technology, USA
