Abstract [en]

The aim of this essay is to explore the hypothesis that interperipheralliterary circulation is achieved through support frominstitutional funders who are situated outside the target cultureand mainly in the source culture – so called ‘supply-driventranslation’. By focusing on Swedish translations of Italian andPortuguese (Angola, Cabo Verde, East Timor, Mozambique, andPortugal) language literatures this study investigates whethersupport from the source culture provides an alternative pathwayfor this literature to make its way into the hands of Swedishreaders, including scholars. First, this study reviews the availablefunding for this literature and maps out which publishing houses,authors, and titles received financial support between 2000 and2018. The analysis focuses on the support from institutions thatare closely related to two of the source countries (Italy andPortugal) and addresses questions regarding the prestige andgender of the supported authors, the size of the publishinghouses, previous translations into English, and how this supportinfluences visibility in the public literary sphere and in theSwedish press. Translations and publications of Portugueselanguage literatures depended on and received financial support,whereas translations and publications of Italian literature werelargely produced without any financial support. However, inmany respects, the source languages show striking similarities.
