AGYA Salon with Fadhil al-Azzawi − Literature, Politics, and Experience

September 12, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The new event series ‘AGYA Literary Salon’ hosts both established and emerging Arab and German authors to discuss their literary careers, visions, and latest works. The Salon especially aims to introduce new literary talents and unknown texts to the public, presenting new thoughts, expressing human values, and providing a source for inspiration

The AGYA Literary Salon kicks off in Berlin hosting the Iraqi-born writer, novelist, and critic Dr. Fadhil al-Azzawi. This first Salon explores how literature in the Arab world has been shaped by disillusionment with the promises of left-wing politics and what art can offer beyond the limits of political realities. The topic will be discussed in conversation with invited experts, Dr. Saleem al-Bahloly, New York University Abu Dhabi, UAE and Prof. Dr. Friederike Pannewick, University of Marburg, Germany. The panel will be moderated by AGYA alumnus Prof. Dr. Bilal Orfali, New York University Abu Dhabi, UAE.
