Tabletalk Europe. Discussions to reinforce democracy
Leipzig Book Fair 2018

Saturday, 17th March, 3.00 – 4.00 pm

Panel discussion (German and English)

The talk series An einem Tisch was established in 2014 by Asal Dardan, Christiane Frohmann and Michaela Müller and is now known as Tabletalk Europe, which encapsulates the transnational character of the project. The result has been a network that brings together people who have been through different experiences as migrants, refugees and exiles. Tabletalk Scandinavia was held in Malmö and Copenhagen in October 2017 in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut Sweden, at which author Lesley-Ann Brown was a guest. The three initiators discuss with her the idea behind Tabletalk Europe, her experiences as an activist and her new book “Decolonial Daughter: Letters from a Black Woman to her European Son”, from which she will also read.

Panellists:
Lesley-Ann Brown (Denmark), activist, author and initiator of the Women’s March Copenhagen
Asal Dardan (Sweden), cultural scholar
Christiane Frohmann (Germany), publisher
Michaela Maria Müller (Germany), journalist and author
