Postmigration literature: a talk with Maï Soreau and Koko Hubara

//Postmigration literature as a reflection on in-betweenness, authenticity and representation. A discussion with Maï Soreau and Koko Hubara//

We are witnessing the growth of a new trend in Nordic literature, expressing an idea of in-betweenness and challenging notions of authenticity and representation. This is something that can be called the postmigration literary generation. A reading of postmigration literature can also entail material and embodied experiences of literature, such as the bodily experience of relating and the physical lack of books and word in Finland. Can we, through a reading of postmigration literature, find novel insights in grasping the intersections of class and racialisation?

Such are the topics of this discussion hosted in Lymy. The program will consist of a presentation followed by a discussion. During the discussion we also invite the audience to participate with their questions.

The language of this event is English, but the audience is welcome to participate with questions in whichever language they feel most comfortable talking in (that will be translated on the spot). The evening is free of charge and open for everyone. No preliminary registration is required (but do take with you some cash for hot and cold beverages for donation).
