Talk

With writers Don Mee Choi (South Korea & USA) | LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs (USA) | Johannes Göransson (Sweden & USA) | Sawako Nakayasu (Japan & USA) | Urayoán Noel (Puerto Rico & USA)

Concept and presenters: Christian Hawkey (USA) poet and Uljana Wolf (Germany) poet

On multilingual speaking! Five authors discuss the theory and practice of translingual poetry with Uljana Wolf and Christian Hawkey. How do many languages become multiligualism, and what various poetics emerge from working with transitions and mergings? There’s certain to be a lot of speaking in many tongues!

 

English-German interpreting will be available for the event.

Project leader: Felix Schiller

 

The Poetry Talk: Freily ausgefranst. Translingual Poetics is presented with the kind support of the Villa Aurora & Thomas Mann House e. V., the DAAD Artists in Berlin programme, the Swedish Embassy Berlin and ECHOO Konferenzdolmetschen.
