What Does the Journey Mean?

November 3, 2013
18.30–19.30
Admittance is free. Please arrive 15 mins prior to the event starting to reserve a seat.

Cezayir Restaurant, Hayriye Caddesi No. 12, Beyoğlu, Istanbul


Suzanne Joinson, who writes fiction and non-fiction, and also dabbles in travel writing, will debate the topic of the ‘hero(ine)’s journey’ in literature with Turkish journalist Aslı E. Perker. The ‘journey’ that characters take in literature is one of the ancient themes in the history of storytelling. Has this lost its importance in the digital age which sees us reaching places and people in much shorter time periods?

This event is held in collaboration with the Manchester Literature Festival and moderated by Elif Karataş. There will be simultaneous English translation.
