An important question concerning literary studies is the circulation of literary works beyond their place of origin. Many other aspects must also be taken into consideration, such as the asymmetric positioning of authors and their work in international circulation, which is conditioned by the relative position of languages and cultures in the global market. This volume focuses on literary and cultural circulation and includes essays that explore this topic through case studies, analysing works and authors from diverse literatures and cultures, and discussions of the theoretical issues surrounding circulation and all that it entails: temporality, place, method, material objects and concepts.
Note on the Texts
In this volume you will notice that the chapters have been written in either British or US English, according to each contributor’s preference. This is an intentional editorial decision. Instead of imposing a common standard, we prefer to embrace the differences as a healthy sign of diversity, which is not only a hallmark of this collection but central to the field of literary studies.
