The present volume consists of articles dealing with a broad range of multilingual practices in Finno-Ugric literatures, in a variety of sociopolitical contexts from Central Europe to Western Siberia. Literature can strengthen the voices of minority communities, enhance the prestige of languages and encourage their creative use. Today's Finno-Ugric literatures give valuable insights into the everyday realities of multilingualism and cultural diversity, showing the performativity of cultures in multicultural and transcultural settings.

Johanna Laakso is Professor of Finno-Ugric languages at the University of Vienna. Her research interests include historical linguistics, gender linguistics and various aspects of language contact.

Johanna Domokos is a comparative literary scholar (Károli Gáspár University, Bielefeld University). Her reseach interests include translingualism, interculturality and the vulnerability of the literary field.
