  Robert Elsie, Albanian Literature in Translation
Another factor which has undoubtedly had a major influence on the lack of interest in Albanian literature has been the traditional isolation of the Albanians and their culture from the world around them.
The Republic of Albania was kept sealed off for almost half a century, from 1944 to 1990, by its Stalinist leaders, as if it were a planet of its own.
The scarcity of translations of Albanian literature has, thus, nothing to do with a lack of quality in the original (although there are admittedly many works of dubious merit which would be better left untranslated), but simply rather with a lack of literary translators from Albanian into English.

  Literature
Poet, critic, literary historian, anthologist, founder and director of East-West Nexus/PROTA, the Project for the dissemination of Arabic literature and Arab/Islamic culture and history; a major Palestinian and Arab literary and cultural figure: This space is dedicated to Salma Khadra Jayyusi.
It was in 1980, as Visiting Professor at the University of Texas, which she came to the final realization that the paucity of Arabic literary and cultural material in world languages, which largely lies behind the misrepresentation of Arab/Islamic culture in the West, must be faced with determination.
She feels that a study of the roots of the large corpus of Arabic literature, one of the richest in the world, will lead not only to a greater understanding of Arabic culture on the whole, but also to a deeper understanding of how literature, both prose and poetry, develop as a universal creative activity.

 Powell's Books - Literature and German Reunification (Cambridge Studies in German) by Stephen Brockmann
In exploring the ways in which authors of the 1990s have sought to cope with history and national identity, the book addresses questions about the role of the nation and a national literature in the context of economic and political globalization.
This is the first full-length study in English of the literary consequences of German reunification, and one of the first to treat contemporary Germany as a cultural and national unity.
It discusses ways in which authors accommodate their national history and identity, and wider concepts of nationhood and national literatures.

 Indicative Discussion of Selected Greek Children's Literature Criticism
In the 15 different studies of this book, children's literature is subsumed into the surrounding social and literary environment and is discussed in and around the context of its manifold relationships with other cultural mediums of expression.
The relationship between Greek and its respective European children's literature is discussed, in addition to the latest forms/types and orientations that children's literature has taken to in the last twenty years.
The level and standard of reading and studying of children's literature in Greece is also probed, whilst achievements in the field of theoretical (philosophical and educational) approaches to the children's book are surveyed and used to portray the frameworks in which the academic study of this whole field of study can henceforth take place.

 glbtq >> literature >> Monette, Paul
In the twenty years since its first appearance in the West, AIDS has been the subject of a large body of literature, most of it written by gay men and much of it designed to expose readers as closely as possible to the emergency of the epidemic and the suffering of affected individuals.
After Stonewall, gay male literature became focused as a movement, aided by the development of gay newspapers, magazines, and quarterlies and the founding of serious gay and lesbian bookstores.
Until the recent emergence of openly gay and lesbian texts, gay and lesbian readers have "homosexualized" heterosexual literature to make it relevant to their lives.

 Some of the Best Books Since 1990
Well, more on that in a minute, but for now: 1990 seems long enough ago that there's been a substantial amount of literature since then, yet so recent that it's difficult to have enough perspective to think about that literature.
Before we go any further, I'd like to call your attention to the title of this list: it's "Some of the Best Books Since 1990," not "The Best Books Since 1990." Although this list was created with the help of a good many knowledgeable bibliophiles, no one here is claiming that this list is definitive.
In that spirit, this list is meant to be an educated jumping-off point for discussions of literature since 1990.

 The Significance of Louise Rosenblatt
Thus, in the 1960's and early 70's there occurred a paradigm shift in the teaching of literature away from viewing the text as authority to a view that focuses on the reader's relationship with text (Rosenblatt, 1938, 1964, 1968, 1978; Squire, 1964; Squire and Applebee, 1968; Purves, 1975; Purves and Beach, 1972; Bleich, 1975).
While some practitioners of reader response were heralding the movement as a “new ” approach, Rosenblatt was able to demonstrate that she had been promoting it since 1937 and that she was responsible for many of its terminological and grass root concepts (1946, 1949, 1956, 1963, 1964, 1968, 1969 and 1970).
However, the significance of the Colloquium was that it marked the official acceptance of the reader-response approach to the teaching of literature which has since been taught in the education departments at colleges and universities across the United States.
