Sievers, W. (Ed.) Grenzüberschreitungen: Ein literatursoziologischer Blick auf die lange Geschichte von Literatur und Migration, 2016
Labels such as 'migrant' and 'migration litertaure' are often rejected by the authors they are used to describe. This volume goes beyond such categories by examining the different ways that migrants enter the literary world and looking at the history of literary migration to Austria (Elias Canetti, Milo Dor, György Sebestyén) and more current authors who have not yet been written about to the same extent (Seher Çakır, Ilir Ferra, Tanja Maljartschuk, Stanislav Struhar). The central questions address how the authors position themselves in their works, the role that publishers, critics and literary prizes play in their positioning, and the impact of their migration biographies and multilingualism have in these processes.
