Elke D'hoker – "A creature other than myself": Art, Nature, Ethics in Sara Baume’s A Line Made by Walking

7:00 pm CET

In A Line Made by Walking (2017) the novelist Sara Baume creates a text that interweaves artworks and creaturely life with a narrative of mourning, exploring possibilities that have recently come to the fore again in contemporary literature (autofiction, the juxtaposition of image and word), through a feminist negotiation of the relationship between ethics and aesthetics. 
Elke D'hoker is professor of English literature at the University of Leuven, where she is also co-director of the Leuven Centre for Irish Studies and of the modern literature research group. 
This event is introduced by the Ambassador of Ireland to Germany, Dr. Nicholas O'Brien and moderated by Prof. Catherine Toal.

This lecture is sponsored by the German Irish Studies Itinerary.
