World literature: Cosmopolitan and Vernacular Dynamics

Researcher: Erik Falk
Project started in 2017
This research programme, generously supported by The Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences, will run from 2016 until 2021, partly with Stockholm University, partly with the Nordic Africa Institute. Its task is to explore, across numerous languages, how aesthetic values, genres, forms, literary communities and individual authorships are shaped in trade-offs between the local and the global, the national and the transnational, and between hegemonic and dominated languages in Asian, African, European and (Latin) American contexts.
