The Invention of Monolingualism harnesses literary studies, applied linguisitics, translation studies, and cultural studies to offer a groundbreaking investigation of monolingualism. After briefly describing what monolingual means in scholarship and public discourse, and the pejorative effects this common use may have on non-elite and cosmopolitan populations alike, David Gramling sets out to discover a new conception of monolingualism. Along the way, he explores how writersTurkish, Latin-American, German, and English-languagehave in recent decades confronted monolingualism in their texts, and how they have critiqued the World Literature industrys increasing hunger for translatable novels.
