Globalizing Fiction.

Our book series publishes research on fiction as a cultural practice
that transgresses but also questions or creates cultural and political
borders. We ask how literary texts or other esthetically encoded media
interact with different sociohistorical contexts, how they adapt to
them, and how they influence them. Fictional forms may be an instrument
of cultural globalization, that is standardization of representational
and interpretational structures. But globalization may as well be
fiction itself: a master narrative creating always different
representations of the world which are distinctively heterogeneous at
the level of interpretation, all while being simultaneously adapted by
infinitely different sociohistorical users.

We welcome volumes on any period in English, French and German, and
especially encourage multilingual publications. If justified by the
subject matter, other European languages will also be considered
