Paul Tenngart presents the research programme on “Cosmopolitan and Vernacular Dynamics in World Literature”, based at Stockholm University and running from 2016 until 2021. The project’s main objective 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 American contexts” (http://worldlit.se/about/). After the presentation of the project in more detail, questions, comments and suggestions will be invited.
