Elfriede Jelinek Reading and Discussion Group

Date: 28 January 2016 Time: 16.00

Venue: Bowland North B 67

This is a group of people from DELC and LICA who are interested in or are working on the writing of Austrian author and Nobel Prize for Literature winner Elfriede Jelinek.  This first session invites us to share views on a first chunk of reading from her 2005 play Ulrike Maria Stuart. The play was premièred in 2006 but has only just appeared in print. Alas, there is no English translation. If you are interested in attending this session (open to all), please let us know.  Equally, if you'd like to come to a future one (perhaps to see a screening of this play or to talk about translation techniques etc.), we'd also like to hear from you.

Our group might be of interest to any colleagues and students of History, LICA, Sociology (Gender & Women's Studies, in particular).



Who can attend: Anyone
