Days of Russian Literature

podcasts

Did you miss the «Days of Russian Literature» in Zurich? Then we recommend you listen to the podcasts which Literaturhaus Zürich made of them.

Bringing together authors, translators, literary critics and scientists from Russia and Switzerland, the « top-class » event, as wrote the Neue Zürcher Zeitung, attracted a large audience. The discussions were highly engaged and knowledgeable and revolved around russian literature, civil society, manipulation attempts and independent positions, posing questions on memory and a culture of memory. Interesting footnote: The scene of the Days of Russian Literature were the very place Lenin used to read his newspapers, as a member of the «Museumsgesellschaft ».
