Juvan: Worlding a Peripheral Literature

Marko Juvan, former member of the ICLA theory committee, has authored the book Worlding a Peripheral Literature. The book contests the view that texts can be attributed global importance irrespective of their origin, language, and position in the international book market. Focusing on Slovenian literature, it addresses world literature’s canonical function in the nineteenth-century process of establishing European letters as national literatures. The book is part of “Canon and World Literature,”  a new Palgrave Macmillan series edited by Zhang Longxi.
