Festival Neue Literatur – Words With Writers
Selected students from Columbia University, New York University, Vassar College, Rutgers College and Hunter College take on Festival Neue Literatur authors in a lightning round of literary interviews.
Featuring authors Fatma Aydemir, Nava Ebrahimi, Ursula Fricker, Meral Kureyshi, Robert Prosser und Philipp Winkler as well as students Leonie Ettinger, Agathe Gindrey, Ashley LaMere, Bianca Oliva, Didi Tal and Steven Weinberg; moderated by festival curator Peter Blackstock.
With special thanks to Professor Susan Bernofsky of Columbia University for her integral role in the organization of this event!
The theme of the 2018 Festival Neue Literature is Insider|Outsider. Each of us is an outsider in some way, but most of us also have privileges that give us access to different opportunities and worlds. The books featured this year explore questions of identity and belonging in a fracturing Europe and beyond, using race, religion, immigration status, politics, and even football hooliganism as lenses to explore contemporary society and the recent past.
