Abstract

This afterword stresses the importance of the concept of translation within the field of contemporary transatlantic literary and cultural studies. It also offers an alternative to the theoretical framework offered by traditional national literary history and literary historiography as the main paradigm for the study of literature. Finally, based on the work of Erich Auerbach and Brent Hayes Edwards, it suggests the articulation of a model of transcultural literary history based on the notion of relationally at the core of Édouard Glissant's notion of a "poetics of relation."
