Regionality and globality

PUL Project

Project leader and staff: Georg Mein, Wilhelm Amann, Isabell Baumann
Duration: 2008-2010

Discussion on the valence of ‘region’, ‘regionality’, and ‘regionalism’ that can be observed in various disciplines in the wake of growing processes of globalization and the loss of significance of national sovereignties and identities has barely had any resonance in literary studies oriented towards cultural studies. The aim was to obtain a systematic overview of symbolic representations and cultural concepts of a new regionality in Europe.
