Conviviality and Contamination features at Göteborg Book Fair:

Post-post-Apartheid and its Literature

Thurs 22 Sept, 15.00-15.45

Svenska Mässan, Mässans Gata 10

If the years after 1994 were post-apartheid, then the present is sometimes referred to as ‘post-post-apartheid’. Disappointment and frustration have often characterized the political climate. What role does literature play in this situation? Masande Ntshanga, author of Triangulum and one of the most high-profile young writers in South Africa today, will be in conversation with Ashleigh Harris, Professor of English Literature at Uppsala University.
