By bringing in different degrees of circulation in different regions and languages, this collection shows that while literary centers do exist in what Pascale Casanova calls the international literary space, their power does not operate unilaterally and modes of intercultural circulation do exist beyond their control. The title World Literature in Motion highlights the fact that world literature is always already the product of certain modes of conceptual and material mobility and mediation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In the ongoing consolidation of world literature studies, World Literature in Motion provides a much-needed elaboration of sociological methods of inquiry. Up-to-date and theoretically savvy, yet attentive to the complexities of doing research across languages and continents, this volume contributes substantially to making literary studies relevant in our global age.--Stefan Helgesson, Stockholm University
Ranging across linguistic and national boundaries, and bridging disciplinary divides, World Literature in Motion is a model for how to tackle the immense challenge of a holistic sociology of world literatures. Taken together, its chapters provide comprehensive insight into the way that the circulation of world literature is mediated by institutional forces--forces that themselves mediate political and economic pressures. This is an essential teaching and research resource for anyone who has lamented the Eurocentrism of the book history establishment.--Sarah Brouillette, Carleton University
