The Material Turn in Comparative Literature
Journal Issue Pages: 128 Volume 70, Number 3 Published: September 2018 An issue of Comparative Literature
Contributors to this special issue propose that the material turn in comparative literature emerges out of (rather than against) what is perceived to be its oppositional figure: poststructuralist thought and the linguistic turn. This insight, they argue, urges us to reconsider the material turn not as a new development in the history of the humanities, but as a set of ongoing concerns, insights, and methods across time.
