What are the economic, political, legal, and technological processes underpinning how authors act on the contemporary global stage, and does it make sense to talk about such a thing as a ‘world author'? This event invites participants to reflect on the social function of authors and translators in the circulation of literature in a global economy. Our research papers consider how recent developments in the commodification of literature have transformed traditional conceptions of the author as an autonomous, but primarily textual, agent, as well as questioned the relationships between ‘minor', ‘national' and ‘world' literatures that individual authors and their translators are still frequently made to represent. Three short-paper panels encourage comparative discussion of individual case studies in the light of our research papers. A round-table with industry specialists concludes the event by presenting the very real practical and legal intercultural issues that determine how authors and their foreign-language rights circulate in the contemporary global publishing industry.
