EWC at the 2020 Frankfurt Book Fair Weltempfang


Europe, Languages and Justice – Gendering in a European context

→ www.www.buchmesse.de

What is gender? And why is it so important to us? Or is it even as important as we’ve all been taught to believe it is? Aren’t there countless social situations in which our gender absolutely doesn’t matter – or shouldn’t matter, at least? What attitude can we, should we have towards it in literary environments? How do we translate queer texts? Together with moderator Mithu Sanyal, our guests Nina George, Karen Nölle and Thomas Meinecke explore these and other questions. Moderator: Mithu Sanyal

Weltempfang: the Centre for Politics, Literature and Translation Frankfurter Buchmesse’s first digital edition of its socio-political stage will focus on the topic “Europe – connecting cultures”. Livestreaming from 14 to 18 October 2020.
