- What’s On
The concept of the ‘city’ in literature encompasses scenes of war and crime, love and hatred, pain and pleasure. It can mark the beginning or the end of a journey. It doesn’t distinguish between the oppressed or the oppressor. Turkish journalist, author, poet and essayist Ece Temelkuran will discuss this topic with The James Black Prize laureate David Pearce, focusing on Istanbul and the recent events that have contributed to its narrative.
The event will be in English with simultaneous Turkish translation.
