In every national literature or region, or in today's multicultural societies, different concepts and/or practices of "world literature" exist(ed). Contributors to the special issue (re)examine the concept of world literature as proposed by Goethe and similar concepts and practices which occurred later and address the following issues: mappings of world literature in different literary systems; the development of the notion of world literature in literary periodicals, reviews, learned journals, encyclopedias, anthologies, book series, and on the world wide web in digital humanities, etc.; intertextual references to and rewritings of world literature in the canonized texts of national revivals; the concept and practices of world literature in modernism, postmodernism, and postcolonialism; the development of world literature canons in curricula of education; the presence of peripheral or semi-peripheral "top authors" outside their own (source) culture: their translation and reception in neighboring countries and regions (i.e., interliterary communities, literary centrism) and their inclusion in the canons of world literature in literary systems and major world languages. 

Articles published in CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture are indexed in the Thomson-Reuters ISI Arts and Humanities Citation Index.
