Course description This summer school will examine the function and meaning of cultural transfer of new narratives written by minorities and migrants. We will also study their works as important tools in building sustainable societies. The concept of cultural transfer as well as the various definitions of ‘minorities’ and ‘migrants’ will be discussed and examined in their historical and political contexts. Topics we will discuss include:* Literary representations of language loss and revitalisation by minority and indigenous writers;* The reaction of minority writers from a variety of regions and languages to societal, political and cultural processes;* Migration as a matter of literary form, and literature itself as a migrating and transformative concept ;* Notions of diaspora in relation to their applicability for transnational literary and cultural studies;* A focus on different aspects of transcultural messages;* Transnational approaches to cultural narratives of exile
