: Patterns and Paradigms of a New Genre as Developed in Selected Novels by Salman Rushdie, Kazuo Ishiguro and David Mitchell

Student thesis: Doc typesDocteur en Langues, lettres et traductologie


This study explores the global novel as an emerging genre in contemporary Anglophone fiction, considering it as both a product of globalization and a project of resistance against it. Through close readings of novels by Salman Rushdie, David Mitchell and Kazuo Ishiguro, it discusses a number of prototypical features to characterize the genre. These include the complex chronotopic imaginaries it deploys and the fluid ontologies it represents, as well as the genre’s strengthening of our sense of global belonging.
