Literary Fuels: in conversation with Susanne Stephan

Goethe-Institut Finnland’s Writer-in-Residence, German author Susanne Stephan takes the stage!

Stephan is a writer of essays, short prose and poetry. Her latest book Der Held und seine Heizung: Brennstoffe der Literatur is an essayistic exploration of the motif of fossil fuels in world literature. In this event, she will discuss the book on stage. What kind of traces has the history of energy production left on literature? What can literature bring into the conversations about energy today?

The discussion will be in English.
