The Europe Center invites you to save the date for a Stanford faculty discussion of Salman Rushdie’s “Joseph Anton: A Memoir”, with opening remarks by co-hosts Amir Eshel (German/Director, The Europe Center), Tobias Wolff (English/CW), and Abbas Milani (Iranian Studies).
All interested faculty and students from all fields are invited to to join us for this open discussion. Thoughts and comments are welcome from all angles of analysis and about the myriad contexts and consequences of the years of the Rushdie affair: historical and present-day religion and its intersection with politics, the poetics of Rushdie’s new book, principles of free speech, authorial ethics and responsibility, international law, extra-juridical and political protections and persecutions, and the way the conflict was brought to a close with models and challenges for post-conflict reconciliation.
Free and open to the public.
