“Moord op Karibib”. Afrikaans Literature: a reading and conversation with Isa Konrad
Mai 3, 2018 @ 18:15 - 19:45
The Namibian-born writer Isa Konrad, who lives in Solothurn and Törbel (Canton Valais), will read from her latest crime novel Moord op Karibib (Murder in Karibib) and reflect on current developments in Afrikaans literature and language. Her previous novels include Diva, a thriller about a South African opera singer who is drawn into the murky world lurking behind Zurich’s music scene.
With Stephan Meyer (University of Basel) and Dag Henrichsen (Basler Afrika Bibliographien) as conveners, the reading will be in Afrikaans (with English translations). The ensuing conversation and discussion will welcome contributions in Afrikaans, English and German, in order for non-Afrikaans speakers to participate.
