Contemporary writers meet their “foremothers”

What is the meaning of women’s traditions and women’s genealogies today? How do contemporary writers perceive their role in a transcultural society? What is the meaning of periphery and centre?  These are some of the questions which the writers Elsa Korneti (Greece/Germany), Dimitra Xidous (Canada/Ireland) and Gabriela Babnik (Slovenia) will explore in a round table discussion about “Meeting literary foremothers”, chaired by Dr Viola Parente Čapkova from the Finnish group of TTT. The event is part of the Vilenica 29th International Literary Festival and will take place on Friday, 5 September 2014, at 12noon (Ljubljana, Kult3000).
