The Handbook of Anglophone World Literatures is the first globally comprehensive attempt to chart the rich field of world literatures in English.

Part I navigates different usages of the term 'world literature' from an historical point of view.

Part II discusses a range of theoretical and methodological approaches to world literature.

This is also where the handbook's conceptualisation of 'Anglophone world literatures' - in the plural - is developed and interrogated in juxtaposition with proximate fields of inquiry such as postcolonialism, translation studies, memory studies and environmental humanities.

Part III charts sociological approaches to Anglophone world literatures, considering their commodification, distribution, translation and canonisation on the international book market.

Part IV, finally, is dedicated to the geographies of Anglophone world literatures and provides sample interpretations of literary texts written in English.
