The project is aimed at presenting authors and works that are present in two or more literatures, to phenomena that transcend linguistic and national borders. The motives for the choice of a second language are sought in living in another environment, the prestige of the second language and the second culture… The choice of language is considered in the context of cultural memory and places of memory. As part of the project, on November 2, 2019, a round table was held at Sofia University with the participation of scientists from France, Belgium, Greece and Switzerland.
