Description

Adding to the political speech acts in Maja Bajević’s exhibition “To Be Continued,” the  tenth-anniversary reprint of Ammiel Alcalay’s from the warring factions (2003), a book-length poem dedicated to Srebrenica, provides an occasion to engage in conversation about public and private speech as well as representations of catastrophe. Join us as Ammiel Alcalay and Bosnian poet Semezdin Mehmedinović, author ofSarajevo Blues (1992) and Nine Alexandrias (2003)—both translated by Alcalay—read and talk about their work.
Cosponsored by the Narrating Change Seminar in the Humanities.
