Competing Communities

Research Area 1, "Competing Communities", investigates how a perceived literary globality is actually an effect of competing communities. RA 1 questions the totalising implications of previous notions of the ‘global’ and supplant them with a concept of ever-shifting relations of transtemporal competitive entanglement. It is especially interested in the criteria for what constitutes a community – what does it take to speak of a community? How small, how large can they be? Can they intersect? Can an actor belong to different communities at the same time? How do communities voice their claims to globality?
