About the event

As part of the programme celebrating the tenth anniversary of the Institute of Modern Languages’ Centre for the Study of Contemporary Women’s Writing, this conference will bring together scholars working on translingual women’s writing to explore the richness of texts produced by writers in languages that are not their mother tongues. This two-day event also features Katja Petrowskaja, author of Vielleicht Esther, and Shelley Frisch who put together the English translation, Maybe Esther, will come together to discuss this singular, haunting, unforgettable work of literature. It takes the reader from Berlin to Warsaw, Moscow and Kiev, Google searches, strange encounters and coincidences to archives, anecdotes and jokes, in a journey in search of the author's own place in the past and present.
