Writing from the edge of Europe: what’s the future for Baltic literature?
12 April, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Miscast variously as Nordic neighbours, former Soviet states and “the East”, the Baltic countries continue to fight against a case of mistaken identity on the world’s stage. So how do Baltic authors engage with their real heritage – individually and nationally – and how do they move beyond it to create something new? Estonian author Andrei Ivanov’s recent historical novel The Harbin Moths explores his country’s interwar years through the lives of the local Russian intelligentsia. He joins translator and publicist Erica Lastovskytė in an event chaired by Nadia Beard to discuss the past, present and future of the Baltic literary identity.
