The EXC 2020 re-conceptualises global literature, positing that literature's temporal entanglements crucially contribute to its becoming global. The Cluster, which has taken up its work on January 1, 2019, will create a dynamic and flexible platform for collaborative research by way of an extensive fellowship programme, a global network of academic partner institutions and cooperations with Berlin's vibrant literary and artistic scene.
