In "English Inside Out" prominent proponents of literary studies take a close look at the current state of the discipline and envisage its future. How has the rise of "political correctness" or "the closing of the American mind" affected the study of literature? Amid diverse theoretical debates about the canon in the media and in academia, these essays explore where the profession is going and what its responsibilities are. The collected essays range through a variety of topical issues: the problem of negotiating between intellectual and political forces; current controversies within Afro-American and feminist criticism; the influence of cultural and gay studies on the profession. Together they explore the interaction of literary studies with modern cultural developments and present the state of the art in literary criticism. Selected contributors are Henry Louis Gates Jr, Jane Gallop, Jonathon Goldberg, Stanley Fish, Eve Kosofsky Sedgewick, Geoffrey Hartman.
