This paper focuses on the new trends of postmodern studies and practices. In her opinion, postmodernism has not been dead as some theorists declared, only that it has entered into a new phase which can be temporarily called “the late postmodern moment,” that is, postmodernism has evolved into an institutionalized and canonized counter-discourse, widely adopted and applied in contemporary cultural practices, artistic creativities, as well as academic and pedagogic studies. This paper also covers other topics, such as the influence of digital information technology upon postmodernism, the historical background of the growing-up of historiographic metafiction, and the similarities and differences between postmodern politics and that of Marxism, feminism and post-colonialism.
