Award-winning Writer Yoko Tawada will collaborate with Bettina Brandt (Pennsylvania State University) in a multilingual performance which includes German and Japanese as well as English translations.

Known internationally for her novels, poems and essays in German and Japanese, author Yoko Tawada creates worlds in which foreigners, outsiders and animals, always aware of their strangeness, navigate and read their surroundings with wonder and minuteness. Tawada will collaborate with Bettina Brandt (Pennsylvania State University) in a multilingual performance which includes German and Japanese as well as English translations. This program is sponsored by the Clarke Forum for Contemporary Issues and co-sponsored by the departments of German; East Asian studies; and the Max Kade Foundation. It is also part of the Clarke Forum’s semester theme, Citizen/Refugee. For more information, visit the website or call 717-245-1875.
