For this literary-focussed issue of the New Global Studies journal we invite proposals for essays on any aspect of literature’s engagement with ideas of the global, from the ways in which literature’s conceptual reach may help us to think the possibilities of the planetary, to how the global literary marketplace can act as a barometer for shifting cultural norms.
The central question that this special issue poses is: how does literature help us to conceptualize the global? Secondary to this, the issue asks how literature, literary theory, and literary movements and networks may help us to shape, observe, and define what Bruce Mazlish called the ‘emerging global civil society’.

“Friedrich Hölderlin and translation”
“Hölderlins Übersetzungen / Hölderlin-Übersetzungen”
The task of translating a literary text often poses the challenge of choosing between content and form. This is, of course, conspicuous in the translation of poetry where meaning and form are indissoluble and constitute an organic whole. Prose translation can be equally exigent. Its narratological ingenuity and nuances in style demand not only verbal dexterity but also the ability to capture the magic concealed in the author’s imagery. In order to produce a version that is pertinent and meaningful to the modern reader, the translator of both poetry and prose takes certain liberties with regard to the source text but inevitably faces the challenge of fidelity to its original language and content.
