Living in Two Worlds: Crossing Borders and Identities to Create Home
The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life| 2121 Allston Way | Berkeley, California
This event has already taken place.
We all cross borders, whether geographical, emotional, or even digital. In our current age, humans are more mobile, and displaced, than they have ever been. These celebrated border-crossers and novelists have spent a great deal of time contemplating a life between the lines. How do we stay grounded in a world that’s constantly in flux? With Lesley Nneka Arimah (What It Means When a Man Falls from the Sky), Carolina De Robertis (The Gods of Tango), Laleh Khadivi (A Good Country), and Pajtim Statovci (My Cat Yugoslavia). Moderated by our very own Michael Holtmann.
Sponsored by the Center for the Art of Translation, the Barbro Osher Pro Suecia Foundation, FILI – Finnish Literature Exchange, and Finlandia Foundation National.
