Multilingualism and multiculturalism are notoriously elusive concepts
resting on partly controversial grounds. All too often diversity is
de fined by „othering“ certain groups, emphasising their different or
„exotic“ characteristics. However, the diversity and dynamics of Uralic
(Finno-Ugric) literatures deserve to be explored from the point of view of
the interaction of multiple cultural and linguistic systems, structures
and networks. With this volume, we want to invite all interested readers
and researchers to consider the potential of Uralic literary
multi­culturality in its entirety.
