IL: Sept 20, 2022: New German Fiction Reading Group: Identitti, by Mithu Sanyal

Join the Goethe-Institut Chicago this fall for a monthly in-person reading group focused on contemporary German-language novels that are newly available in English translation!

This reading group is free and open to all, and discussions will be held in English.

In September the reading of Identitti by Mithu Sanyal; translated by Alta L. Price Nivedita, also known as Identitti, is a well-known blogger and doctoral student at the University of Düsseldorf who idolizes her supervisor, superstar Postcolonial and Race studies Professor Saraswati. But just a couple of hours after being interviewed on the radio about her blog and respect for Saraswati, Nivedita’s life and sense of self are turned upside down when it emerges that Saraswati is actually white (and German).
