Hubert Butler i Rebecca West

Nakon razgovora sledi projekcija dokumentarca: „Hubert Butler: Svedok budućnosti” LINK

Po prvi put u Srbiji, Kris Agi (Chris Agee) i Ejdan Omali (Aidan O’Malley) prodiskutovaće u tandemu o dva najznačajnija pisca koja su se bavila Jugoslavijom – o Hjubertu Batleru (Hubert Butler 1901-1991) i Rebeki Vest (Rebecca West 1892–1983). Ovo dvoje pisaca – jedan Irac i jedna Engleskinja, ponudili su nam specifične poglede na međuratnu i ratnu Jugoslaviju. Diskusija će biti uvod za projekciju značajnog književnog i istorijskog filma o ovom esejisti.

Ejdan Omali (Aidan O’Malley) predaje na Odeljenju za engleski jezik na Univerzitetu u Rijeci. Autor je mnogih radova o Hjubertu Batleru, kao i nekoliko monografija eseja o irskoj kulturi i književnosti.

Kris Agi (Chris Agee) (1956) je pesnik i esejista. Trenutno je urednik najznačajnijeg književnog časopisa Irish Pages. Živi na relaciji između Irske, Škotske i Hrvatske.

Hubert Butler and Rebecca West

Followed by screening of the documentary
“Hubert Butler: Witness to the Future” LINK

For the first time in Serbia, Chris Agee and Aidan O’Malley discuss in tandem two of the greatest English-language writers on Yugoslavia, Hubert Butler (1901-1991: whose work focused on Croatia) and Rebecca West (1892 – 1983: whose work focused on Yugoslavia). Together these two writers – one Irish, one English – offer discerning outside perspectives on interwar and wartime Yugoslavia. A fascinating introduction to the major literary and historical film that follows.

Aidan O’Malley teaches in the English Department of the University of Rijeka. He has written extensively on Hubert Butler, and is the author of several monographs and many scholarly essays on Irish literature and culture.

Chris Agee (b 1956) is a poet and essayist. He is currently the Editor of Irish Pages, Ireland’s premier literary journal, and its imprint, The Irish Pages Press (www.irishpages.org). He divides his time between Ireland, Scotland and Croatia, and lives in Belfast.
