César Domínguez y Manus O'Dwyer. Contemporary Developments in Emergent Literatures and the New Europe. Santiago de Compostela: Universidade de Santiago de Compostela, 2014.

Contemporary Developments in Emergent Literatures and the New Europe seeks to explore changing conceptions of European identity, and the possible ways in which we can speak of a «N/new Europe», in the context of a discussion of the concept of literary emergence.
