LITERATURE: NARRATING THE UNSPEAKABLE
17 February 2023, 13.00 – 15.00
Kulturhuset Lilla Studion - Stockholm
The written word can help to describe the known and envisage the yet unknown, to reflect on the familiar and understand the new, to express and elicit joy and pain. It can help to feel and heal. But what happens to the content, ability to write and the role of literature during the war? Can words run out? How can one describe what Ukraine and the world are experiencing right now and why it is so crucial?
In this panel, we will talk about the writer and his/her experience of the war. We will explore both the importance and the challenges of literature covering the war and its implications.
The panel discussion will be held in English.
