The project has been approved for a period of two years (01.03.2016 - 28.02.2018).

During the first year of the project, primary texts, translations, and pieces of reception evidence relevant to the project are to be collected, inspected, and documented. In addition, the project assistants will have informal talks with authors, publishers, and institutions both in Carinthia and Slovenia. The criteria for describing the texts and for creating the annotated bibliography of the texts to be documented are to be prepared. Test articles are to be produced in order to determine the text form for use in the final descriptions. The process of producing text descriptions for the annotated bibliography should begin at this time as well. Furthermore, the project will be presented at various universities and research institutions in Austria and Slovenia.

In the second year, text descriptions for the annotated bibliography are to be completed and collected data and information are to be analyzed. Preliminary results are to be published in the form of one or two scholarly articles in professional journals, initial preparatory work is to be done for the publication of project results in print, and the data is to be processed into an internet-friendly form (e.g. in a database). Besides from that, it is aimed to organize an international conference on literary exophony in the region of Alpe-Adria.

On the page Activities you can find information on presentation dates, publications and other project-related activities.
