„Le passé d’un individu, c’est comme son ombre: on le porte toujours avec soi. Il faut apprendre à vivre avec, et à s’en servir pour avancer.”

Literatures of the World

The Samuel Fischer Visiting Professorship for Literature was established on the initiative of Prof. Dr. Gerd Mattenklott at the beginning of the summer term 1998. It is funded by S. Fischer publishers, Freie Universität Berlin, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the Veranstaltungsforum Holtzbrinck Publishing Group. Each semester an author is invited to teach at the Peter Szondi Institute of Comparative Literature supervised by Prof. Dr. Claudia Olk. In addition to a seminar at the Freie Universität Berlin public readings and events with the guest professors are organized in Berlin and other German cities.

    "Concert of Words" at the Pierre Boulez Saal

    Französische Straße 33D, 10117 Berlin

    with László Krasznahorkai, Teresa Präauer and Louis-Philippe Dalembert
    Free admission, registration necessary

    Since the summer term 1998, around 1,200 students met 40 authors from all over the world to work with them on texts, examine the development process, develop writing ideas, discuss and discover the literatures of the world immediately without academic filter. On November 5th, we want to celebrate that we have been able to invite international authors to Freie Universität Berlin every semester. On this evening we want to connect words with sound and rhythm and make the polyphony of the literatures of the world come alive.
