19. Oct 18:00 - 20:00

ASL, in cooperation with the Konfuzius-Institut Leipzig, invites to a reading from Dong Li’s work.

October 19
Konfuzius Institute Leipzig

Otto-Schill-Straße 1
04109 Leipzig

Dong Li is currently the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation German Chancellor Fellow at the Institute for American Studies. His work is concerned with contemporary American, Chinese, and German voices exploring the relationship between language, culture, and politics. In this reading Li will present his experience from extensive trans-Atlantic and trans-Pacific travels, which becomes a map of his poetry that moves from one language to another and ultimately amounts to a sensitive anthropology of our migratory world.

Reading is in English. The event is free and open to the public.
