Annual Conference 2024 | Literary Value: Artistic, Academic and Critical Practices

This year’s annual conference will investigate practices of literary evaluation as processes that result either in implicit or explicit forms of (re-)evaluating literary phenomena, for instance by assigning new value to them or by increasing or lowering the esteem they are held in. The concepts and criteria according to which value is assigned materialise within socio-cultural practices that take place in specific contexts and accord different roles to variously situated actors. Rather than defining subsets of evaluation, our praxeological take on literary evaluation aims to develop a particular perspective on the ways in which literary value is produced.
