Abstract

EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY PRESS CounterText A Journal for the Study of the Post-Literary Volume 8, Issue 2, August 2022 CounterText is uniquely centred on the study of literature and its 21st-century extensions. Are the broader resonances of the literary being overtaken in the drifts towards image cultures, digital spaces, globalisation and technoscientific advances? For CounterText, the post-literary is the domain in which any artefact that might have some claim on the literary appears. However, the post-literary domain also allows for vital and challenging migrations and mutations of the literary. Such artefacts might be called ‘countertextual’. The countertextual is strategic, metamorphic and revelatory of the charged evolutions and radical transformations of the literary today. Drawing on critical, cultural and literary theory, as well as other traditions of literary criticism and philosophy, CounterText publishes contributions that explore this fluid ‘post-literary’ reality in its various forms, challenges and possibilities.
