Session Description:

As a glocalized network, world literature has been produced, disseminated, perceived, used, and canonized through multiple geocultural perspectives. How were particular literary practices (imperial, metropolitan, peripheral, or transnational) positioned and circulated in the asymmetrical system of world literature? How do we study literature's globalism from a truly comparative perspective?
