In 2016, Duke University press published a book-length dialogue between two leading literary and cultural critics, Ranjan Ghosh and J. Hillis Miller, Thinking Literature Across Continents , which provides the starting point for this discussion forum. Particularly pertinent both for this forum and, more generally, special issue, in the fifth chapter of Thinking Literature Across Continents , Ghosh examines the possibilities of “more than global” as a lens through which to assess the possibilities not only of literary but of all thought processes. Here, five scholars – Rob Wilson, Sandeep Banerjee, Frank Schulze-Engler, Zahi Zalloua, and Ming Xie – meditate on the potential of Ghosh‘s “more than global” thesis. Finally, Ghosh responds to these meditations in the light of his ever-developing thesis.
