This volume is a critical introduction to the populous field of postsecular theory. A nuanced theoretical intervention into the ‘secular’ and the religious, it engages with both theory and praxis. Postsecular Theory charts the basic premises and sustained scholarship of the field, providing panoramic coverage and critical summation. It analyses a range of literary texts and issues from contemporary culture, to model literary praxis of postsecular theory.
Literary/Cultural Theory provides concise, lucid and nuanced analyses of a range of key concepts, theorists and texts in contemporary literary and cultural theory.
