By drawing on different theories of realism, the authors explore how the term may be used as a helpful concept in order to analyse and evaluate current trends in cultural production and, in turn, how cultural production changes our understanding of what counts as realism . The volume deals with media-specific and national traditions of realism, thereby offering a transdisciplinary engagement with forms and socio-political functions of realism in contemporary culture.
