Der Fall Belgien: Mehrsprachiger Kontext und Literaturen (1830 bis heute)

Onderzoeksoutput: BlogResearch


The classical model of national literature - defined by the correlation of territory and language - generally negates multilingualism as a central feature of national literary production and thus reaches its limits in the case of the multilingual situation in Belgium. Following a pluralistic approach, this paper therefore traces the emergence of "Belgian literatures" in French and Dutch, respectively, through the dynamics of linguistic-cultural and political discourses in Belgium from the founding of the state in 1830 to the present day. In this way, the change from an originally nationalistic-unitarian conception of literature in Belgium to a regional orientation of literature, i.e. tied to language and cultural communities, is presented.
