This paper deals with the concept of minor literature, which is understood as a kind of provocation towards literary history, and investigates the unstable, “wobbly” position of Hungarian literature in Slovakia occupied in Hungarian and Slovak literary histories. The methodological basis of the article is formed by the phenomenon of transculturalism, which is capable of activating and generating meanings on various spaces, levels and layers of literature. The study discusses different levels of transculturalism through some authors and texts in Slovak Hungarian literature, along with transcultural authorial identity, transcultural meaning-making machinery of texts, transcultural practices of the social context, and transcultural directions and gaps in reception. The purpose of the paper is to classify some transcultural phenomena and to unravel their conceptual and interpretative levels.
