With stimulating readings and podium discussions, spoken word performances and live music, the CARNIVAL OF LITERATURES unfurls its literary network and discusses socially relevant topics from the North and South in the context of an interdependent world.

In the emancipatory and antiauthoritarian tradition of the carnival, the CARNIVAL OF LITERATURES establishes a discursive platform for critical analysis of universalized conceptions of culture and identity, and offers room for perspectives beyond Eurocentrism.

In a captivating indoor atmosphere on Friday in Berlin and breath-taking open-air atmosphere on Saturday in Potsdam, crime writers from countries including Denmark, Germany, Britain, India, Singapore and South Africa will present their controversial revelations about criminal offences and foul play.

PLANET CRIME – on the 15th and 16th of July 2016


The CARNIVAL OF LITERATURES is a cooperative event organized by Berlin’s WERKSTATT DER KULTUREN and the Institute for English and American Studies at POTSDAM UNIVERSITY.
