This interdisciplinary collection of contributions aims at exploring and challenging the concept of periphery from various angles and in different fields of Applied Linguistics, Language Teaching, Literary and Cultural Studies. As the “writing back” paradigm of Postcolonial Studies illustrates, the concept of periphery still implies the existence of a center, which generates and sustains binary oppositions and hierarchical structures. In times of global migration and transnational mobility, the concept of periphery needs to be renegotiated in order to make sense of the newly emergent dichotomies in the linguistic, cultural and literary spheres.
