The German Consulate General Recommends:
As part of the Literary Mews and the PEN World Voices Festival, Deutsches Haus at NYU presents “Tell Me What Democracy Looks Like,” a conversation among Marion Brasch, the current Max Kade writer-in-residence at Deutsches Haus at NYU, Zetta Elliott, and Siri Hustvedt, which will be moderated by Marcia Pally. Our panel will reflect on the current crises that democratic institutions and governments around the world are facing as part of the rise of strong populist movements. It will not only examine the power of everyday citizens to affect change through protest and resistance, but also their individual approaches to activism and how to fortify the democratic principles we rely on.
The talk, part of the PEN World Voices Festival/Literary Mews will take place at Deutsches Haus at NYU on Friday, April 20, 2018 at 6:00pm.
