Summary
  • Der auf Englisch erscheinende Band bringt neue Überlegungen zum Thema ,Weltliteratur' aus der Feder führender Fachvertreter aus den USA, Indien, Japan, England, Frankreich, Deutschland und dem Nahen Osten. Die Aufsätze kreisen um die Frage, welches die produktiven Implikate des Konzepts einer Weltliteratur, das erstmals im 18. Jahrhundert entwickelt und dann von Goethe ausgearbeitet wurde, für die heutige, sich rapide globalisierende Welt sein könnten. Dabei werden Probleme wie unterschiedliche Schriftsysteme, die je nach Kultur verschiedenen Funktionen von Literatur und Fragen der Relation von ethnischer Selbstbeschreibung und kultureller Zugehörigkeit diskutiert. Die Beiträge gehen zurück auf eine Konferenz, die im Jahr 2012 am Dahlem Humanities Center, Freie Universität Berlin, stattfand.--
  • The present volume introduces new considerations on the topic of "World Literature", penned by leading representatives of the discipline from the United States, India, Japan, the Middle East, England, France and Germany. The essays revolve around the question of what, specifically in today's rapidly globalizing world, may be the productive implications of the concept of World Literature, which was first developed in the 18th century and then elaborated on by Goethe. The discussions include problems such as different script systems with varying literary functions, as well as questions addressing the relationship between ethnic self-description and cultural belonging. The contributions result from a conference that took place at the Dahlem Humanities Center, Freie Universität Berlin, in 2012.--
