European Ways

13 April, 2016 @ 5:30 am - 6:30 pm

Zurab Karumidze, novelist and co-editor of Georgia’s European Ways, in conversation with Maureen Freely, novelist, President of English PEN, and translator of the Turkish Nobel laureate Orhan Pamuk. For 300 years, according
to a new book of essays, Georgia has gravitated towards a European identity that was interrupted by 70 years of Soviet rule. Karumidze, now an adviser to the Georgian government, discusses what makes Georgians dream of Europe as their home. What is the forgotten history of the First Republic of 1918-21, when European modernism suffused Georgian arts, and avant-garde Russian artists found refuge there? What are the parallels, or contrasts, with Turkey in its relationship to Europe?
