Writing Europe 1918-2018 – Public Reading with Kathrin Schmidt, Rachel Seiffert, Linor Goralik and Cécile Wajsbrot

How has Writing Europe changed from the aftermath of World War I to 2018?

What did classic writers of the early 20th-century have to say about Europe just after the war?

And how do four writers from the main continental countries which fought during the First World War see Europe now, on the brink of a new crisis?

Linor Goralik (Russia), Kathrin Schmidt (Germany), Rachel Seiffert (Britain) and Cécile Wajsbrot (France) will discuss these and other questions during the public reading which will take place

on 26 September 2018, 6.15pm-8pm.

Grimm-Zentrum, Zentrale Universitätsbibliothek Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin,

Geschwister-Scholl-Straße 1/3, 10117 Berlin (3 min walk from S-Bahnhof Friedrichstraße).

All writers will read from their own work as well as from writers such as Proust, Kafka and Manning. The readings will take place in the original language, the discussion will be in English and German. German-English interpreting will be provided.

Everyone is welcome to attend.

We look forward to seeing you next Wednesday!

The event is co-hosted by The Centre for British Studies and The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH). It is funded by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.
