Abstract

Notwithstanding the critique of conventional genre theory and practice in postmodern literary criticism, genre continues to be an important feature in literary, filmic and artistic production and reception. But, perhaps as a result of this general suspicion against, and questioning of, genre, the transcultural aspects of migrant genres have so far received no systematic attention. This ought to change, this chapter argues, since the application of the notion of transculturality to genre studies yields a novel research agenda and approach to migrant genres.
