This paper examines Jessica Hagedorn’s postmodern novel Dogeaters as a possible mode of critical engagement with the unavoidable reality of postmodernity. The text’s postmodern literary techniques reflect the cultural conditions of its own production, while the narrative addresses the questions of (neo)colonial history and subjectivity in our contemporary world of accelerated border-crossings. Hagedorn employs the strategy of disidentification as a means to reconceptualize the modern subject as the transnational intersubject, co-formed through the dialectics across global capitalist space and neocolonial time. The text, woven with characteristically postmodern literary devices, opens up the very contradictory space of postmodernism itself. As a self-reflexive mimicry of the postmodern conditions of production, it brings to the fore the conflict between the mimicked images of the First World and realities of the Third World.
