Globalization in Literature

Edited by: Per Thomas Andersen

This collection of essays is presented in the context of rethinking the field of literature and cultural studies in an era when cultural identity is changing. From a Scandinavian perspective, the point of departure is that today we are developing as post-national constellations and cosmopolitan selves. Through a number of articles on literary works, films, and visual arts, the book offers perspectives on cultural encounters marked by globalization. The main topics discussed include human rights, world literature, cosmopolitanism, migration, translingualism, and postnational identities.
