    Revolutions in Reading: Literary Practice in Transition
    Beitrag von: Jobst Welge

    How to read and why? Reading is intimately connected to the materiality and mediality of texts, as well as to dominant assumptions about what texts are and how they should be approached. Today, digitalization is profoundly changing practices and cultures of reading, a development which is often seen as a threat, risking to change the human cognition in ways that makes the traditional book obsolete. At the same time, it presents exciting possibilities for new and innovative ways of consuming and...

    The Production of Paradise. The role of travel literature in the discursive construction of the South Sea as utopia on Earth
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    This project sets out to understand how travel literature translates and mediates accounts from and of the world – from one local setting to another, and over time. It is, more specifically, concerned with Western travel writers’ persistent and persuasive accounts of life in the South Seas as ‘Paradise on Earth’. For 250 years, Western travel writers have travelled to the South Seas, found it to be ‘Paradise’ and written home about it. With this study of both a genre and a profession I seek...

    The Contemporary Russian Cosmopolitans
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    During the Post- Soviet period Russian culture has re-entered a common globalized space. The traditional dichotomy of Russia vs. the West which characterized Russian cultural dynamics has entered a new phase marked by the re-evaluation of the notion of exile, or émigré literature. Authors (and chosen works) studied here belong to three generations of Russian cosmopolitan writing beginning with Nabokov and Brodsky, both regarded as precursors by younger Russian writers: Vladimir Nabokov’ s...

    Language and Literary Worldmaking in Southern Africa: The Case of Little Magazines
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    The titles of literary journals in southern Africa tell an interesting story. We have, on the hand, all those irreducibly local and vernacular names: Voorslag (Durban 1926-1927), Izwi (Johannesburg 1971-1974), Charrua (Maputo 1984-1985), Staffrider (Johannesburg 1978-1992), Donga (Johannesburg 1976-1978), The Purple Renoster (Johannesburg 1956-1972), and so on. Each could be explored in its own right, as it opens up a particular domain of local experience: the hoe, or...

    In the Frame: Social and Cultural Geographies of Documentary Modernism
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Irina Rasmussen Goloubeva’s project explores modernist collaborative projects: the modes of reading they invite, the values they generate, and the worlds that they project. It argues that the adaptation of journalistic, ethnographic, and analytical modes of writing for aesthetic programmes we find in documentary modernism was a way to re-think the world dynamics and create new cultural and social geographies. The aim of this study is to map the complex ways the modernist imagination of the 1920s...

    Cosmopolitan longings and vernacular belongings. Constantinople in literary fin-de-siècle and high modernism
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    The aim of this subproject is to study experiences, conceptions and functions of Constantinople. It contributes to the programme’s theme of world-making and languages by looking at literary representations of “one” place across a number of languages, scripts and authorships. The intention is to analyse how Constantinople is represented and valued in vernacular literatures from various languages during fin de siècle and high modernism. Around 1900 Constantinople was a multiethnic,...

    Made in Italy. A diachronic study of literary circulation and translation in the semiperihery
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Focusing on the translation flow from Italy to Sweden, the primary aim of this project is to examine the changes that the symbolic capital of Italian literature has undergone in the Swedish context during the last century and its manifestations in the localizing practices involved in the translation process. By emphasizing the relation of two semiperipheral literatures on the global translation market, the project could modulate the somewhat schematic thinking of transnational circulation as a...

    East African literature on the market 2000-2010
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    PhD Erik Falk’s project “East African literature on the market 2000-2010” investigates the disjunctive relationship between literary markets for East African fiction in English. The study, which combines quantitative and qualitative methods, falls into two parts. Part one maps the production and circulation of literary fiction across the East African region with a particular focus on genre and key narrative features. Part two analyses the circulation and reception of internationally renowned...

    Cosmopolitanizing from Within: Migrant Writers in Sweden
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    This subproject explores the social world of the young generation of migrant writers and their work, fiction and journalism, ranging from established writers such as Jonas Hassen Khemiri to debutantes such as Pooneh Rohi. By uncovering often cruel experiences of racism in a country which boasts an ethnically inclusive policy, yet has an expanding anti-immigration party (the Sweden Democrats), these writers have both a Swedish and an international readership. The project’s contribution to the...

    African Women Writers
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    This project explores transnational dynamics in the literary production of African women writers in Nigeria and Tanzania, with an emphasis on feminism and cosmopolitanism. Drawing on anthropological theory and method, it is an ethnographic study centered on a select number of contemporary women writers in different genres (novels, short stories, poetry, plays and children books) and the cultural circumstances of their literary production. Theoretically, the project centres on transnational...

    Mediating the North in a Transnational Context. Vernacular and Cosmopolitan Places in Nordic Noir
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Louise Nilsson's project within the research program Cosmopolitan and Vernacular Dynamics in World Literatures addresses the values of places depicted in literature. Seeing that the contemporary genre of Nordic crime fiction is a globally dispersed literary genre that interacts with other media forms, for example in film-making based on novels, she investigates how the depiction of local and global place creates an imaginary which is in turn bound up with a broader notion of the European...

    Globalization and Civic Imagination in American-Muslim Writing Since 2001
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    This project looks into the ways socio-political developments in the US and its role in the global new world order(s) since 2001 affected the changes in the notion of citizenry and its manifestations in literature. Writings by Mohsin Hamid, Michael Muhammad Knight, Khaled Hosseini, and Mohja Kahf stage a particular dialectic between the liberal cosmopolitan notions of world citizen and more vernacular manifestations of the same within the US borders. It is in fact by choosing four vernacular...

    Worldly vernaculars in the Anglophone Caribbean: Claiming place by means of literary style
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Based on earlier work on the construction of place in the Anglophone Caribbean, this study seeks to delineate the ways in which the writers of a peripheral cosmopolitanism (a cosmopolitanism that was always to some extent imposed on its subjects) have used the Caribbean vernaculars as a linguistic resource, as a narrative object, as a utopian thematic in order to reorganize the literary territory that is sustained by metropolitan and cosmopolitan markets. By looking at the English-language...

    Carry the Burden of the Past, Capture the Present and Bear a Promise to the Future? - Vernacular and Cosmopolitan Memories in Sinophonic Literatures
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    By tracing vernacular and cosmopolitan tendencies in the making of ”Chinese literature” I am exploring the literary field as a contested site of struggle between global and local commitments, thereby creating continuously changing notions of identity confined with nation-state and community. In the first part of the project I re-visit significant literary and cultural debates, identify meta-literary articulations of literary and cultural identity and explore modern and contemporary literary...
