In Landscapes of Postmodernity, a group of young scholars link key
concepts of postmodern thought to our present everyday experience in which
we change our identities on a regular basis. While many of the essays look
at less conventional modes of aesthetic representation – computer games,
graphic novels, telenovelas, queer and animated films – others analyze
more canonical works following less conventional approaches. Either way,
the cultural and literary cartographies presented in this book allow
America to be conceived as polymorphous or transnational, celebrating a
new American self that is aware and proud of its non-Anglo-Saxon origins.
