Gulbakyt Kozhbayeva – Kamar Karimova – Aizhan Kurkimbayeva – Moldir Dinassilova
The article focuses on manifestations of the metamodern philosophical paradigm in contemporary multicultural art, particularly in an American immigrant novel. In recent years, there has been a wide discussion on naming and defining the ongoing reality, so the related theories have been reviewed to identify the current period characterized by globalization and, thus, cross-culture diversification of the communities. According to our research, multiculturalism can be defined as a social policy of metamodern diversity. Analyzing multicultural literature, we have illustrated how the distinguishing features of the metamodern worldview, like constant oscillation, reconstruction, metaxy, pluralism, etc., are expressed in the content and form of multicultural literature. The research findings may contribute to the further understanding the multicultural nature of metamodern principles in philosophy, cultural studies, and social relations.
Key words: multiculturalism, postmodernism, metamodernism, multicultural literature, philosophical and cultural paradigm
