Summary
"The essays in Postcommunism, Postmodernism, and the Global Imagination set out to examine the ways post-Cold War accelerated globalization has been reshaping Central and East European literatures, cultures, and theoretical-ideological debates, in particular those aesthetic and cultural practices and discourses revolving around experimentalism, the neo-avant-garde, and, most importantly, postmodernism." "Questions posed by the contributors include: Which new configurations of theme, form, and ideology have emerged in the former communist countries in the post-1989 global world? What is the impact of globalization on cultural traditions, old and recent, in this geopolitically fluid part of Europe? How do these countries' writers, artists, critics, and public intellectuals see themselves in the new, evolving context? More basically, how do they imagine the globalizing planet and themselves in it? How do they picture themselves and their lands in the process of "going global," as individuals and communities resist or complicate globalization?"--BOOK JACKET
