World Literature: Perspectives and Debates

Edited by Andrew Rubin

A Publication of The American University in Cairo Press

As one of the first non-European journals to critically address the category of Weltliteratur bilingually from the perspective of the Global South, this special issue of Alif addresses this problem theoretically and empirically. The critical conversation about the problem of the category of Weltliteratur is not only extended beyond the European and North American sphere that has largely dominated and framed the discussion of Weltliteratur, but is juxtaposed formally in a way that permits us to understand that there are other "world literatures" that allow us to reexamine the contending theories, practices, and underlying assumptions of Weltliteratur.
