“European Regions: Progress in Literary Culture” (41-minute panel discussion)
In the light of recent political and economic trends counter to a more unified Europe, panelists assess progress culturally and consider new approaches and understandings of European literary cultures and regions. Aiming for a new infrastructure for European literature, our project, including the Trafika Europe Radio initiative, seeks to foster greater openness and mutual regard among European literary communities toward a more shared European identity.
Trafika Europe is pleased to have presented this panel discussion at the StAnza International Poetry Festival, on Friday, 05 March 2021. Participants: Tess Lewis, translator from French and German; Bulgraian Milena Deleva, head of the Elizabeth Kostova Foundation, and Turkish-Kurd author Burhan Sönmez – hosted by Trafika Europe director Andrew Singer.
