Content (Spanish):

Este volumen se ha propuesto incluir no solamente los debates teóricos y metodológicos con respecto a la posible definición del microrrelato como  ʺcuarto géneroʺ  y los diversos análisis sobre el desarrollo y la historia del mismo, sino también relacionar la minificción literaria con otras prácticas simbólicas (como las minificciones cinematográficas, etc.), y considerar las nuevas posibilidades de difusión de la minificción en los medios masivos de comunicación y, sobre todo, en las redes sociales (Facebook, Twitter) y en el Internet en general.

The 3-day event is the fifth research encounter in a series of “Forschungstreffen Suhrkamp/Insel”, hosted by the Deutsches Literaturarchiv Marbach. The combined conference and young researcher’s workshop is organized by the Deutsches Literaturarchiv Marbach and Gesine Müller (Universität Potsdam) with support of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and further funding by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the Federal Foreign Office (AA).

The conference title “Publisher Power World Literature” aims to tackle several questions:

How come that some literary works turn successful and become part of the canon of world literature? What is the role of publishing strategies, translation processes, and the international book market in pushing authors and their works? Focusing on the literary networks between Germany and Latin America, both scholars and central participants of the literary field explore literary production from a transnational perspective.

The 3-day conference is part of a larger research project on Transandean studies, currently led by Marco Thomas Bosshard (Ruhr-Universität Bochum) and Vicente Bernaschina Schürrmann (Universität Potsdam). In its theoretical framework, this symposium is the first of its kind, bringing together scholars from Mexico, Italy, Germany, USA, Brazil, the Netherlands, Bolivia, and Spain to tackle a variety of crucial questions about the region:

How is the cultural space of the Andes perceived by the politics, the societies, and the scholarship of the different countries in the Andean region? As the ones who have mainly shaped the transnacional character of the cultural Andean space, where do the indigenous communities fit in? How can this cultural space be modeled, (re)constructed, and be filled with life?

Content (in German)

EuropAmerikas beschäftigt sich mit der Gestaltung der transatlantischen Beziehungen, wobei insbesondere auch der Südatlantik in den Blick genommen wird. Jenseits etablierter Formeln vom “alten” Europa und den “neuen” Amerikas wird eine Perspektive entwickelt, welche die Gleichzeitigkeit und gegenseitige Bedingtheit des Denkens mit allen seinen Konflikten in den Blick nimmt.
