Abstract / short description:
Literary studies today are faced with a fundamental contradiction between their primarily national orientation within universities (English literature, German literature, South African literature, etc) and the increasing globalization of literary markets and internationalization of writers’ own identities (diasporic, exilic, or cosmopolitan authors) and interests (global issues from immigration and refugee s, via global warning to the global economic crisis, to fundamentalism or the global war on terror). The proposed DAAD-Visiting Chair of Global Literary Studies seeks to bridge the gap between German institutional structures and global literary marketplace realities
