In this lecture topics and concepts of intercultural and transcultural research will be introduced. We will define the terminology and concepts such as minority, multiculturalism, transculturality, identity, ethnicity, hybridity and cultural memory.

When analyzing literary and artistic work there will be a special focus on the political dimension of literature, questions of production and reception and the importance of identity-building processes.

We will discuss the political potential of literature and art created by “minorities” and

we will have a close look at situations, where members of the “minority” and members of the “majority” cooperate in the production of literature / art, challenging the terminology -“minority” / “majority”. We will take examples of “minorities” in Austria

as well as international examples.

We will analyze questions of production and reception, the topic of orality and literacy, the possibility of subaltern speech and the relevance of alliances of minorities.
