Dr Mithu Sanyal, (award-winning German cultural historian, journalist and author) - date TBC. This visit offers students and the wider community the opportunity to explore Dr Sanyal’s writing and her unique insights into contemporary German-language culture, through translation, discussion and public reading. The visit will form part of a high-profile programme of visits to 5 universities in the UK, co-organised with the universities of Edinburgh, Bristol, Oxford and Leeds and including a visit to the Goethe-Institut Glasgow. The host consortium has worked closely with Dr Sanyal’s English-language publisher – the Berlin-based V&Q books, run by the award-winning translator from German, Katy Derbyshire – to develop the programme for the visit. The planned activities at Warwick will bring students and the wider public community into direct contact with a significant voice in contemporary German-language culture. The two events will focus on Dr Sanyal’s Deutscher Buchpreis-short-listed novel, Identitti, and its recent translation by Alta Price for V&Q books, situating this within wider debates currently shaping the German-language cultural scene.
