Intercultural Perspectives on Gender and Sexuality: A Reading and Discussion with Antje Ravic-Sturbel and Joachim Helfer
Monday, Feb. 19, 5 p.m.
German writers Antje Ravic-Strubel and Joachim Helfer read from their works, which explore the topics of sex, gender and nationality. Ravic-Strubel is a prize-winning author who grew up in East Germany and has translated many of Joan Didion’s novels into German. Helfer, who grew up in West Germany, will read from his book What Makes a Man: Sex Talk in Beirut and Berlin, an extended dialogue with Lebanese author Rashid Al-Daif.

Following the readings, Gary Schmidt, professor of German and chair of CCU’s Department of Languages and Intercultural Studies, moderates a discussion concerning gender and nationality in both German and American cultures. This event has been made possible through the support of CCU’s Arts and Humanities Global Experience Program, the Center for Global Engagement, Women’s and Gender Studies, and Multicultural Student Services.
