Literature in a globalized context [2.75 mb]
Doctoral Programs at Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg (Department of Romance Languages and Literatures / Program of Literatures at the Graduate Academy) Masaryk University Brno (Department of Romance Languages and Literatures) and the University of Szeged (Department of Comparative Literature / Doctoral School of Literatures) have been co-operating since 2000 in the form of regular conferences. The basic idea was to offer a forum for post-graduate students to speak about their research to other students of the same level and to supervisors from the three universities at conferences organized on a rotating basis. On some occasions other universities joined or organized conferences: in 2003 Novi Sad Serbia in 2009 La Sapienza and Accademia d’Ungheria in Rome were organizers or co-organizers while in 2014 doctoral students from Eötvös Lóránd University Budapest came to Szeged and in 2019 we could welcome students from Olomutz beside Halle Brno and Szeged. During the past two decades altogether twelve conferences offered up to now possibilities for doctoral students to discuss their topic and publish their findings in international multilingual volumes or e-books. These meetings were around topics like borders media symbols of national cultures real and imaginary journeys North vs. South the canon texts and media space and time literature and globalisation the strange(r) in literature art culture (see the list below). The doctoral students were involved not only by reading papers but also by helping the organizers and coediting the volumes of selected papers thus mastering experience in international academic activities. The eleventh conference of this initiative took place in March 2018 at Stiftung Leucorea in Wittenberg and focused on Literature in a globalized context. We are glad that most of the papers presented in English Spanish French Italian and German on that occasion can be published in the present volume within the electronical publication serial The Impact of Literature and Language on Culture and Society from the 19th to the 21st Century (Sprache – Literatur – Gesellschaft. Wechselbezüge und Relevanzbeziehungen vom 19. Jahrhundert bis zur Gegenwart) of the program of Literatures at the Graduate Academy of our university.
