Section I: Artistic Practices

This section explores valuation practices in the modern literary field and in literary translation, focusing on originality as a supposed 'key' value of literary works. The section examines, on the one hand, how systems of funding, publishing, and literary awards construct certain ideas of literary value and literariness. On the other hand, it inquires into how literary value is produced and negotiated in the practice and theory of translation. The section is especially interested in the distribution of power in practices of valuation and in the resulting power relations within literary infrastructures.
