“World Literature” suggests a territory without borders, where writers and their readers enjoy international mobility and intelligibility. The judges of the Man Booker International Prize 2015 discuss the meaning of a term coined to cover contemporary developments in fiction and the changing map of literature. They ask whether writers can and should go global, like other travelling goods, and explore how translation affects writers, their work, and their audiences.
