Literature is often seen as a reflection of culture, as it can give insight into a society's values, beliefs, and customs. Representation in literature refers to how individuals or groups are depicted and how these depictions may reinforce or challenge societal norms and stereotypes. It can also be used to promote cultural understanding, empathy, and social change. The 10th edition of Litera Kultura Journal, number 2, explores the relationship between literature, culture, and representation. It presents a number of articles that examine how literature and graphic pictures depict human life, including its material and non-material aspects, as well as the psychological problems that are present. The articles in this publication aim to highlight the significance of literature, culture, and representation.
This volume shares the ideas of the interconnectedness of literature, power and gender. The articles in the publication encompass the issues which have close relationship of literature and other fields such as power and gender. Power has a long history in human kind development to be fostered in society and institutions. Gender is a social creation which plays another important part in shaping people's beliefs about human identity and relationship. It challenges the academic scholars to study and develop new horizon of ideas of culture and civilization in modern time. Some researchers in the publication communicate their ideas in different perspectives and projections which thus have clearly shown that these three issues are still relevant to be acknowledged and redefined for further completion of insights of literature, gender and power.
