In the organizer's words:

Reading and discussion series for queer-feminist, intersectional content

Next event on May 23, 2024, 7:30 pm: "Horror & Core"

New and lesser-known voices have their say here - without genre restrictions. Leonie Hoh, Jennifer de Negri and Suse Itzel initiated the platform to give a space to authors who are marginalized or fall through the cracks of the established literary scene - because they can't or don't want to find a place in it. In addition to the readings, the moderator takes on a literary classic for each event, which is viewed through a queer-feminist, intersectional lens. In addition to new voices, new perspectives on the reception of the literary canon and the discussion of normative structures will be presented.

The authors on May 23, 2024: Charlotte Krafft, Sonja M. Schultz and Kamala Dubrovnik

Talk guest: Dr. Katrin Kämpf (KHM)

"I am malicious because I am miserable." This is what Frankenstein's monster says to his creator above the village of Chamounix in the Swiss Alps before he sets out to take revenge on him and on humanity - for his exclusion, his isolation, his othering. Susan Stryker writes in reference to this scene in her text "My Words to Victor Frankenstein above the Village of Chamounix": "May your rage inform your actions, and your actions transform you as you struggle to transform your world."

Our next event on May 23 will be dedicated to the topic of Horror & Core. We will dive into the weird, creepy, gruesome, violent and wonderful and ask ourselves: What can horror do that other genres cannot? What emotions and affects can be negotiated when we break out of realism and take our fears to extremes?

We will listen to texts by Charlotte Krafft, Sonja M. Schultz & Kamala Dubrovnik. With Dr. Katrin Kämpf we talk about Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, why the monster is not so angry for no reason and what we can learn from it according to Susan Stryker.
