Herta Müller and the Currents of European History

Herta Müller and the Currents of European History
21 September 2017, 8.45am - 22 September 2017, 5.00pm
Conference / Symposium
The Court Room, First Floor, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU

2017 marks 30 years since Herta Müller fled Romania, yet her work on the damaging effects of exploitative regimes and the dehumanisation of man by man sadly remains as relevant as ever. This conference aims to bring together leading Müller scholars as well as new voices, and to facilitate a collective reassessment of her work and its significance in the light of 20th- and 21st-century history, as well as the now over 40 spanned by her career. 

Keynote speakers: Karin Bauer (McGill University); Norbert Otto Eke (Paderborn University)
