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

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.
