Project CODL Eastbound (a cooperation of Huygens ING/KU Leuven/ELTE Budapest)
Dutch-language literature often has a wider distribution than is generally assumed, partly thanks to translations and adaptations. The international peer reviewed journal Dutch Crossing has published a new issue (nr. 2 of vol. 44, 2020), dealing with the transnational circulation of this literature. The seven articles in the issue investigate the dynamics of a minor European literature exporting to other (minor and major) European literatures and new cultural contexts. The introductory paper discusses recent theories concerning the phenomenon of world literature and its connection with translation. The issue is an outcome of the Eastbound project, supported by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) and by the Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO).
The entire issue is available in Open Access: https://www.tandfonline.com/toc/ydtc20/44/2Lees verder >>
