Heroes Like Us? Female Writers Discuss the 30-year Anniversary of the Fall of the Wall

Reading and Discussion

The so-called Wenderoman is with few exceptions a traditionally male-dominated genre. How does a female perspective change the perception of events taking place around 1989 and the ensuing years? Is the concept of the heroine a different one? Female writers share their personal situation, their expectations, their surprises and their disappointments. How do they assess this from today’s standpoint? Did women deal with the changes better than men? With Carmen-Francesca Banciu, Marica Bodrožić, Kerstin Hensel, Katja Lange-Müller, Annette Simon, Sieglinde Geisel.
