Literature seminar: “Faultlines, Fictions and Futures”

As part of my role within the British Council Benelux, I will have the chance to attend the Our Shared Europe Literature seminar that will take place in Berlin this weekend, from 12 to 14 November 2010. I will mostly blog on the British Council Culture:Log blog about the sessions throughout the weekend.
I have to say that I am really excited about meeting Ahdaf Soueif, a writer I've been admiring for a long time (and who was also praised by the late Edward Said). She will chair the seminar, and other speakers will include writers Inaam Kachachi, Jamal Mahjoub and Robin Yassin-Kassab. There will be a wide range of participants coming from the UK, Germany, Malta, the Netherlands, Serbia, Slovenia, Portugal, Turkey, France, Greece and Belgium.

If you want to follow the seminar, watch the Culture:Log blog and my twitter account.
