The nature of the future - a year-long series of meetingsMeeting with Jonathan Lear

Meeting with Jonathan Lear

Literature accompanies us every day, so this year we decided to offer readers an additional series of conversations (not only) about literature, entitled "The nature of the future".

"We will talk about the most important problems that we have to face today: about depression caused by social isolation, about systemic violence that occurs in institutions, about geopolitical processes that affect the life of local and global communities, about the relationship between people and other beings inhabiting the Earth... We will always bear in mind literature, wondering how it can help us to better solve these problems. The series will also be a way to prepare for this year's edition of the Conrad Festival, as the talks presented within it will place the festival's ideas in various contexts, ”says Grzegorz Jankowicz, Program Director of the Conrad Festival.

Every last Thursday of the month, from May 27 to December 2021, you will be able to watch online interviews with prominent writers from all over the world. All meetings will be lead by Grzegorz Jankowicz.

Jonathan Lear will be the first guest of the series. On May 27, the American philosopher and psychoanalyst will talk about what radical hope really is, and will reveal his recipe for living and acting in a world engulfed in a total crisis.

The meeting will be available on the Facebook profile of the festival.
