Literary discourses in the age of science and technology exist in the state of invariable flux. With the ongoing academic practices, it seems that the peripheries of English studies must be remapped. The limited boundary of scholarship has attempted to respond to the many contemporary issues; but the most serious issue, namely the global ecological emergency, has apparently been ignored.
The absence of collective efforts of academia suggests that the scholarship, despite its revisionist strategies, has been untouched from its outer world. The major literary publications across the world till the late 20th century were preoccupied with the issues of race, gender, class, politics, philosophy and economy.
