TitelGlobalizing Literary Genres
BeschreibungInternational conference Globalizing Literary Genres - Graduiertenkolleg Funktionen des Literarischen in Prozessen der Globalisierung - LMU München

In today’s globalized world . . . This is how opening addresses usually start these days. Indeed, in today’s globalized world, why should we study literary genres? A possible answer, one particularly interesting for this conference, is that precisely the study of such formations as genres is what defamiliarizes the abovementioned addresses. Ultimately, this type of study should test the assumption that it was not until recently that the world became globalized, and as such the obvious measure of the study of any phenomenon. Definitions of globalization usually start by acknowledging the difficulty of defining globalization; it seems as if the vagaries of defining globalization are a part of any definition of globalization. Perhaps this is the reason why most studies address globalization by adding the conjunction “and” or the preposition “of”; globalization is more often than not globalization and something else, or the globalization of something. Often, globalization is even replaced by such notions as second modernity, liquid modernity, postmodernity, late capitalism, or empire.

When it comes to the relationship between globalization and literature, the suspect conjunction “and,” or preposition “of,” can perhaps be replaced by the adverb “as,” insofar as the histories of globalization and literature are structurally connected. For it is the wager of this conference that globalization, far from starting in recent decades, has a long and complex history, not unlike the history of literature itself. The conjuncture of globalization and literature therefore in effect invokes the entire historical dimension of literature. Hence genre, the level of literature most conducive to historical study.
