Europe: Literary Liminalities

The political and linguistic diversity of the European continent - which challenges the uniqueness of a global language – induces a multifocal and multilingual approach in literary creation concerning the European issue. 

Moreover, the current conjuncture of the Old Continent is confronted with dangerous populist drifts and the temptation of a nationalist closure. The fictional concern of writers focusses on this complex problematic to be addressed by, on the one hand, the still significant sequels of the conflictual History inherited from the 19th and 20th centuries and, on the other hand, the prospective idea of an institutional construction. This idea is essentially focused on the economy and finance, which Europe cannot be reduced to.
