Archive Asylum: Archiving and Researching Endangered Literatures
War and flight endanger the literature of affected countries. Authors struggle to survive. They are unable to write. They lose their libraries, manuscripts, pictures and other valuable objects. In response to these political and social challenges, how can we build up an archive for asylum and offer these literatures the place they serve in research? How can an asylum archive preserve threatened memory? In this public lecture, Professor Sandra Richter will draw upon her directorship at the Deutsches Literaturarchiv Marbach to address these urgent questions for the twenty–first century.
