Namen:
Prispevek, napisan predvsem z britanskega zornega kota, prinaša pregled literature na temo ponudbe, promocije in bralcev leposlovnih del v angleškem jeziku v Veliki Britaniji, katerih avtorji so pripadniki etničnih manjšin.
Metodologija/pristop: Prispevek v uvodu obravnava različne termine, ki opisujejo to leposlovje, glavni del pa je usmerjen v pet členov, ki predstavljajo verigo ponudbe in povpraševanja: avtor, knjigotržec (knjigarna), dobavitelj, splošna knjižnica, bralec. V prispevku skušamo predstaviti najpomembnejša znanstvena in strokovna besedila, ki obravnavajo posamezne člene v tej verigi.
Rezultati: Prispevek ugotavlja dve skrb vzbujajoči dejstvi: prvič, da je bilo na temo leposlovja, katerega avtorji so pripadniki etničnih manjšin, doslej narejenih zelo malo empiričnih raziskav, predvsem z vidika bralcev, in drugič, da so se predhodne raziskave osredotočile predvsem na jezikovni vidik in uporabo, ne pa na kulturni pomen tega leposlovja.
Omejitve raziskave: Glede na to, da ta pregled predstavlja del širše empirične raziskave, je prispevek skoraj v celoti osredotočen le na leposlovje v angleškem jeziku.
Izvirnost/uporaba: Predhodne raziskave na to temo niso upoštevale vseh pet členov v verigi ponudbe in povpraševanja po leposlovju, katerega avtorji so pripadniki etničnih manjšin, predvsem niso upoštevale bralcev tega leposlovja. Te pomanjkljivosti smo odpravili v pričujočem prispevku.

Ključne besede

bralna kultura; etnične skupine; leposlovje; splošne knjižnice; Velika Britanija
