Hebrew Worlds – On the Presence of Ancient Texts in Modern Ivrith

Inaugural lecture by Anne Birkenhauer (audio recording available, in German)

The August Wilhelm Schlegel guest professorship of the German Translators’ Fund and the Free University of Berlin honors outstanding literary translators and creates a space for reflection on the poetics of the translator’s art.

In the winter semester, one of the most important mediators of Israeli literature is honored in Anne Birkenhauer, who lent authors such as Yaakov Shabtai, Yehoshua Kenaz, and David Grossman her voice.
