- What’s On
Scottish writer Damian Barr who did his time at some of Britain’s most popular newspapers and has written two books, Turkish author Hikmet Hükümenoğlu, Austrian novelist Thomas Stangl and Izmir-born, Amsterdam-based author Murat Işık will tackle how the author is deconstructed in the digital age. Social media allows for the author to establish a connection with the reader ‘between texts’, so to speak. Whether perceived as a challenge or an opportunity to build a new kind of connection, the author indulges in reconstructing his/her identity on online media. And, does the author’s ‘identity’ on Facebook and Twitter become a new kind of text itself?
The event will be in English and Turkish.
