»European Encounters« is a series of talks from the German Academy for Language and Literature that are organised together with its European sister institutions in Denmark, Estonia, Great Britain, Sweden, and Hungary.
Two members from different countries – including writers as well as scholars – will debate various current European topics in the context of public events. These encounters will take place outside of Germany for the first time in 2015.
