This issue explores East-Central European literary and literary historical narratives from the perspective of the phenomena and networks of transculturalism, following the concepts of globalism, heterotopia, extraterritoriality, translocality, deterritorialization and border crossing. By examining the role of transculturalism in the specific literary formations of the region, the articles show the effect of multi- and translingualism as well as cultural hybridity in texts, microliteratures and minority literatures. The aim is to contribute to the development of more diversified approaches in the writing of national literary history in East-Central Europe.
