For anyone who is interested in how literature preserves knowledge that would otherwise be lost, or is curious to learn how by the use of the un-real we manage to handle reality; anyone who will enjoy seeing Scheherazade being replaced by an utterly useful camel; anyone who never understood (read) Raymond Federman’s pasta-novel, and wants to enjoy a polyglot evening in simple English including a dictionary of travelling words.
This will take place in association with:
Fractured Stories? Narratives of Migration. Roundtable at Ertegun House, University of Oxford, 10am, Saturday 25 February 2017 with Ulrike Draesner (writer; Visiting Fellow, TORCH) Andreas Kossert (Fellow at the Foundation for Flight, Expulsion, Reconciliation, Berlin); Katie Brown (Teaching Fellow in Hispanic Studies, Bristol); Mette Louise Berg (Senior Lecturer, Social Sciences, UCL); Geetha Reddy (Psychology, LSE).
