Christina Kullberg writes on Maryse Condé in DN
In an article in the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter, Christina Kullberg from our group writes about Maryse Condé's novels as world literature and reflects on their Swedish reception. Maryse Condé was recently in Stockholm to receive the New Academy Prize in Literature.
New Book: World Literatures
In her recent book, Postcolonial Poetics, Elleke Boehmer sees world literature studies as assuming “a general interchangeability across cultural divides” (14). This has been one tendency in the field, but whether it describes the current state of world literature in the academy is debatable. In our new publication, World Literatures: Exploring the Cosmopolitan-Vernacular Exchange, the intention has been different: to return to the rough ground of literature’s making of and being in the world.
