    y separately published work icon The Journal of Commonwealth Literature vol. 45 no. 2 2010 Z1702663 2010 periodical issue 'Along with various other strands in contemporary cultural studies, postcolonial commentary has done much to shift attention away from unitary readings of texts, particularly by placing as much emphasis on the where as on the when and the how of writing and other cultural formations. That where has a good deal to do with the locations – personal, commercial, linguistic and geographical among them – of a text’s production, but it also involves the complex of factors that come into play in the reading of texts, which invariably generates new meanings, even on the part of “innocent” readers, who willy-nilly find themselves engaging in acts of interpretation, as they read across places, periods,regions and languages, all of which are themselves in flux.' (John Thieme, Editorial introduction) 2010 pg. 189-206
