Literary readings 2021

Origins

To what extent do social origins determine our position in society? In what way is our education, profession and standard of living influenced by our origins? Which roles do race and class, in addition to gender, play in academic and literary discussions? The Literary Readings will discuss these questions in contemporary fiction. We have invited four cutting edge writers - Christian Baron, Kurt Drawert, Deniz Ohde and Stefanie Sargnagel – to present their recent works at readings in Bern.
