Will Self To Give Annual Sebald January 11, 2010
This announcement is quoted from Will Self’s website:
Will Self is going to be giving the annual WG Sebald lecture at Kings Place in London on Monday 11 January at 7pm. Self will analyse Sebald’s Holocaust writing in the light of the evolving historical understanding of the Holocaust and the part the German people took in it. Self asks whether, when it comes to such crimes against humanity, it is possible for their [sic] to be a literature either by, or about, the perpetrators, and what purpose such writings might fulfil.
If anyone goes to hear Self, I’d love it if you would write up a report as a comment to this post.
