Should we still speak about “small" language literatures?

On the situation of "small" languages in Europe

Most European literatures are written in “small” or “minority” languages that co-exist alongside dominant ones in a dynamic European diversity. How vibrant are they in terms of the voices and world views they offer? How do they project themselves internationally and how aware are they of literary production from elsewhere? The panellists discuss their literary scenes as authors and translators.
