Literature constitutes an important, yet not sufficiently explored archive for the understanding of globalization processes. Thus, the DFG Research Training Group "Globalization and Literature: Representations, Transformations, Interventions" focuses on the complex relationship between literature and global/izing dynamics: What are the different functions of imagination and fiction in the processes of globalization? What are the historical constellations of globalizations made visible through the analysis of literary texts? In which ways do processes of globalization impact or transform literature and its genres? How does literature not only represent, but reflect, constitute, critize globalization?
