Academic workshop at the University of Tübingen, Germany
10-12 June 2024 (in person)
In an increasingly globalized world, where a combination of digital technologies and multiple possibilities for migration, as well as the unfortunate realities of regional conflicts and climate change, people are brought together not just across geographical but also socio-cultural barriers. Race, class, gender, and creed, among other factors, come into collusion and synchrony in the most stunning ways to produce more and more questions about the value and meaning of a human life. In this context, the question of authentic voice and its representation looms paramount and the writing of literature its biggest ally.
