Sharing a common aim - that of taking the first step in identifying and analysing some of the emergent trends in contemporary European literatures - scholars from across Europe come together in this volume to address a range of issues. Topics include the post-postmodern- the effect of new media on literary production- the relationship between history, fiction and testimony- migrant writing and world literature- representation of ageing and intersexuality- life in hypermodernity- translation, both linguistic and cultural- and the institutional forces at work in the production and reception of twenty-first-century texts. Reading across the twenty chapters affords an opportunity to reconsider what is meant by both European and contemporary literature and to recontextualize single-discipline perspectives in a comparatist framework.
