The focus of this study is to establish the aesthetic strategies related to globalisation that appear in digital literature in order to evaluate their possible classification as World Literature. This study proposes a conceptualisation for studying globalisation as a transcultural phenomenon based on theoretical developments of phenomenology, hermeneutics and social practices, including a classification of ways to address the links between digital literature and globalisation that appear in the texts considered here. The analyses of texts in different languages allow a wide and comparatistic approach, although a close reading of the German/English text Worldwatchers will provide more detailed types of strategies for the expression of globalisation through digital literature.
