This study presents a critique of social constructionist identity politics, which is distinguished from specific identity-based political positions, from within and with social constructionist commitments. Gupta examines the institutionalization of social constructionist identity politics in literary studies, considering the notions of canonicity.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Gupta's book is a timely intervention which wrestles with the legacy of theory and the intellectual fallout of identity politics in the humanities. This is a wide-ranging, intelligent and politically-engaged study that refocuses our attention on exactly what it is we do, and should be doing, when we study literature and culture.' - Dr Mark Turner, King's College, University of London, UK
