The joint seminar of the University of Helsinki and the Estonian Institute in Finland examines some interesting contemporary Estonian fiction.

Who is writing, what are they writing about and why? What is the role of a writer in today’s Estonia? Writers Kai Aareleid, Maimu Berg and Jan Kaus are asking, answering and pondering. At the translators’ roundtable, Sanna Immanen gives an overview and looks at the future of Finnish translation. The seminar is moderated by university lecturers Sirje Olesk and Satu Grünthal.

The seminar is open to everyone. Coffee is provided on-site.

Participants of the University of Helsinki spring semester’s lecture course “Viron nykykirjallisuus” (“Estonian Contemporary Literature”) will receive 1-2 credits for participating in the seminar. Additional information: Sirje Olesk,
