Boston University Photonics Center, 8 St. Mary’s Street, 9th floor
Join us for an evening of conversation with Dubravka Ugresic, one of Europe's most distinctive novelists and essayists. From her early postmodernist excursions, to her elegiac reckonings in fiction and the essay with the disintegration of her Yugoslav homeland and the fall of the Berlin Wall, through to her more recent writings on popular and literary culture, Ugresic's work is marked by a rare combination of irony, polemic, and compassion. The event will be moderated by Igor Lukes, Professor of International Relations and History. Free and open to the public. Reception and book-signing to follow. This event takes place as part of our European Voices series – an ongoing series of conversations with artists and writers, activists and intellectuals exploring questions at the intersection of politics and culture. Co-sponsored by the literary journal AGNI. Funded in part by the European Commission Delegation in Washington DC.
