This chapter focuses on current disarticulations of one of the major beliefs in the imaginary of the modern/colonial world system: the complicity between language, literature/culture, and nation. If such disarticulation is taking place for various historical reasons, including massive migrations from the former Third World to the industrialized North Atlantic countries, and technoglobalism, there have been—since the 1970s—a number of literary experiences and practices responding to such disarticulation. At the same time, and since the 1970s, one of the major cultural revolutions of the time has been the coming into being of communities claiming they write to participate in the making of planetary civilization.

Keywords:   disarticulations, language, literature, culture, migrations, technoglobalism, cultural revolutions, planetary civilization
