Under the timely topic of “Upended,” the participating authors, who hail from Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and the U.S., will reflect upon and discuss major recent changes and disruptions in the areas of culture, politics, and identity in the German-speaking world and the United States. All participating speakers are affiliated with various editions (past and future) of Festival Neue Literatur, the first and only festival to spotlight German-language and American fiction, and will also read brief excerpts from their most recent novels as part of the event, which is curated by Tess Lewis.
