Nov. 15: Turkish Novelist/Journalist Ece Temelkuran to Discuss Writing/Thinking in Times of Evil

On Wednesday, Nov. 15, noted novelist/journalist Ece Temelkuran will talk about Turkey as the first experimental ground for a global political phenomena; rising populism. The event will take place in the Gallery Theatre in the Elaine Langone Center at 7 p.m.

Around the globe the same questions seem to emerge from political and literary thinking, “Who are we now?” “What is the truth?” and most importantly, “Is there hope?” As her novel “The Time of Mute Swans” explores the beginning of the current political climate in her country, Temelkuran is questioning the fundamental reasons of rising populism and authoritarianism. Her novel studies the line between good and evil alongside with the basic human determination for creating beauty as a form of resistance.
