The Annual Conference 2024 of the Cluster of Excellence investigates practices, contexts and agents of literary evaluation. The assignment of value to texts and artworks within the cultural sphere, the academic world and on the global market is deeply entangled with the dynamics of power and gatekeeping, inclusion and exclusion. As such, notions about literature and literary value are subject to continuous explicit or implicit negotiation, challenge and subversion. The three conference sections ›Artistic Practices‹, ›Academic Practices‹ and ›Critical Practices‹ aim to develop a praxeological perspective on the various ways in which literary value is produced and questioned within the respective fields.
