A Romani Literary Evening will be held at the Václav Havel Library in Prague, Czech Republic on 16 May 2022.

On Monday, 16 May at 18:00 a Romani literary evening will be held in the Václav Havel Library in Prague, Czech Republic. The discussion will be broadcast online by ROMEA TV.

What is the position of Romani writers on the Czech literary scene? Can literature authored by members of a minority ever escape the shadow of being a fringe genre?

What does it really mean to be a Romani writer? Stanislava Miková and Patrik Banga will share their experiences during the evening.

Minority versus majority, peripheral versus mainstream. What was it like under communism, and what changed after November '89?

Non-Romani authors Beatrice Landovská, Jáchym Topol and Petr Placák will discuss their experiences with the Romani authors. Karolína Ryvolová will bring an expert perspective to the discussion as a Romani Studies scholar who is the editor of KHER, a publisher of literature by Romani writers.

The discussion will be led by Alica Sigmund Heráková, director and presenter of the Romani online television station Tuke.TV. Musician Tibor Žida will perform at the close of the evening.

The event is organized by the Babylon Revue in cooperation with Romea.cz, the Václav Havel Library, and the Centre for the Roma and Sinti in Prague (a project of the Museum of Romani Culture). The "Tower of Babel Project - Literature by National Minorities in the Czech Republic and Norway, 2021/23", is being supported by the Culture Program of the EEA Funds 2014-2021.
