This book highlights the best new interdisciplinary research on the theory and practice of cosmopolitanism, with a special focus on the cosmopolitan literatures of Europe, Asia, Africa, and North America, from medieval times to the present.


"Lively, smart, compelling, this book reclaims and redefines cosmopolitanism in a wide range of periods and places. Its first-rate essays will be of keen interest to anyone grappling with questions of transnational and intercultural experience." -- Jahan Ramazani, author of The Hybrid Muse: Postcolonial Poetry in English

"Cosmopolitan Geographies suggests that the geographical diversity as well as the long history of 'cosmopolitanism' is absolutely vital for imagining a non-ethnocentric international humanism today. The essays in this important volume bring together a rich variety of historical contexts, literary practices, and political imperatives in order to provoke us to rethink the relationship between national cultures and internationalism, and between cultural difference and universalism." -- Ania Loomba, Professor of English, University of Illinois and author of Colonialism/Postcolonialism
