Multilingualism and Multiculturalism in Finno-Ugric Literatures

Edited by: Johanna Laakso, Johanna Domokos

Multilingualism and multiculturalism are notoriously elusive concepts resting on partly controversial grounds. All too often, diversity is defined by "othering" certain groups, emphasizing their different or "exotic" characteristics. However, the diversity and dynamics of Uralic (Finno-Ugric) literatures deserve to be explored from the point of view of the interaction of multiple cultural and linguistic systems, structures, and networks. This book invites all interested readers and researchers to consider the potential of Uralic literary multiculturality in its entirety. (Series: Finno-Ugrian Studies in Austria.
