The Other Half: Asia Pacific - Societies in Diversity and Change

Innovation and tradition: New directions in challenging times.

Asia, Australia, Oceania – the Asia-Pacific region includes several countries with various languages, traditions and ways of living. How does literature reflect these multiethnic nations and their manifold worldviews? Which relations between traditions, old rites and new concepts of life, between antiquated gender stereotypes and sudden breaches of taboo are depicted?

Three authors discuss diversity, upheaval and the potential of literature.
