World Editors. Dynamics of Global Publishing and the Latin American Case between the Archive and the Digital Age

July 1-3, 2019 – Schloss Herrenhausen, Hannover

funded by VolkswagenStiftung

Organization and Concept:
Gesine Müller (Cologne)
Gustavo Guerrero (Paris)
Benjamin Loy (Cologne)

The debate around the concept of World Literature has reemerged in tandem with a period of globalization that began in the 1980s, and for the past two decades it has been in a highly charged, critical, and intense phase which has not yet come to an end. However, a significant part of scholarship in the field has lacked to attend the question of how World Literature actually is “made”, i.e. to analyze the complex interaction of the multiple material, economic, and literary factors at stake in global processes of circulation of books.

From a perspective informed by materialism, sociology and historiography the conference considers literature or, to be more precise, books as products that have to undergo a series of processes enabling a text to cross borders (or not) and to be transformed into globally circulating commodities, combining the complex operations of selection and the aggregation of different kinds of value.

To overcome the widespread disciplinary and methodological narrowness of World Literature studies, the conference will gather around 40 scholars from different disciplines ranging from Literary Studies to Book History and Digital Humanities to analyze the complex networks and actors that influence in processes of global circulation of literature: gatekeepers as publishers, literary agents, book fairs, festivals and prices, but also politics of translation and the role of literary and editorial archives and new media and digitalization will be attended with regard to Latin America as a case study and in dialogue with several representatives of the global book market.
