Eugene Ludwig Lecture

Dead as a Dodo? Why Literature Matters in Times of Migration and Unrest

Ulrike Draesner Will present the first Eugene Ludwig Lecture associated with the time as Writer in Residence and Visiting Fellow in New College, Oxford and TORCH.

For anyone who is interested in how literature preserves knowledge that would otherwise be lost, or is curious to learn how by the use of the un-real we manage to handle reality; anyone who will enjoy seeing Scheherazade being replaced by an utterly useful camel; anyone who never understood (read) Raymond Federman’s pasta-novel, and wants to enjoy a polyglot evening in simple English including a dictionary of travelling words.

17.00, Friday 24th February, 2017 (sixth week), McGregor-Matthews Room, New College.
