For more than a decade literary criticism has been thought to be in a post-theory age. Despite this, the work of thinkers such as Derrida, Deleuze and Foucault and new writers such as Agamben and Ranciere continue to be central to literary studies. Literary Criticism in the 21st Century explores the explosion of new theoretical approaches that has seen a renaissance in theory and its importance in the institutional settings of the humanities today. Literary Criticism in the 21st Century covers such issues as: The institutional history of theory in the academy The case against theory, from the 1970s to today Critical reading, theory and the wider world Keystone works in contemporary theory New directions and theory's many futures Written with an engagingly personal and accessible approach that brings theory vividly to life, this is a passionate defence of theory and its continuing relevance in the 21st century.

Focusing on texts written during several high-profile public controversies of the late 18th-century and Romantic period in order to map the intersections between literary aesthetics and the politics of popular discourse, this dissertation argues that such texts became a primary vehicle for understanding public writing and Britain's diverse, contentious and expanding reading audiences. I argue that contemporary writers understood public debate as a complex discourse, sitting at the convergence of several distinct areas of cultural activity: it was a forum in which literary, political, and philosophical ideals were all forced to adapt to the expectations of a continuously changing public audience. Thus, my dissertation conceives of the literary practice of public debate as both a medium for political exchange and an aesthetic proving ground, arguing that it facilitated the practical and ideological changes in writers' attitudes toward public discourse required for the development of new, publicly oriented, and highly politicized literature.

Wenn in den USA schwarze Teenager von Polizisten ermordet werden, ist das nur ein Problem von individueller Verfehlung? Nein, denn rassistische Gewalt ist fest eingewebt in die amerikanische Identität – sie ist das, worauf das Land gebaut ist. Afroamerikaner besorgten als Sklaven seinen Reichtum und sterben als freie Bürger auf seinen Straßen. In seinem schmerzhaften, leidenschaftlichen Manifest verdichtet Ta-Nehisi Coates amerikanische und persönliche Geschichte zu einem Appell an sein Land, sich endlich seiner Vergangenheit zu stellen. Sein Buch wurde in den USA zum Nr.-1-Bestseller und ist schon jetzt ein Klassiker, auf den sich zukünftig alle Debatten um Rassismus beziehen werden.
