Ilija Trojanow: Sehnsucht nach Eis. Von Bayern, Gletschern und anderen antarktischen Phänomenen

ILIJA TROJANOW is a prize-winning and best-selling German novelist and travel writer, the author of many books of fiction and non-fiction, including The Collector of Worlds, Along the Ganges, and Mumbai to Mecca. His autobiographical debut novel was adapted into the award-winning film The World Is Big and Salvation Lurks Just Around the Corner. Trojanow is one of the foremost German public intellectuals, and has written on domestic surveillance, global warming, and the human condition in the age of globalization. He will read from his novel EisTau (engl. translation publ. by Versobooks in 2015: The Lamentations of Zeno), a haunting literary reflection on global warming.

This lecture is co-sponsored by the Joint Initiative in German and European Studies.

Ilija Trojanow is a guest of the Goethe-Institut

This event is free and open to all. Registration is not required. For further information, please contact the Department of German at 416-926-2324
