This chapter explores the new rhythms of movement in which the relationship between national identity and humanistic practice was renegotiated. It first describes how the United States and Britain asserted their domination by reterritorializing the entire geography of postcolonial space. From here, the chapter looks at how technology has enabled magazines to not only reproduce but “synchronically” replicate their content. Moreover, the chapter examines the relationship between the writer and public during the postcolonial era, which underwent further transformations that would decisively expand and constrain cultural space. Finally, the chapter looks at how critics, novelists, and poets were recruited, mobilized, and exported in a historically decisive way that altered the situation of the transnational postwar writer and their public, as well as the effects thereof.

Keywords:   literary diplomacy, Communism, postcolonial space, cultural space, transnational postwar writers, magazines, national identity, humanistic practice
