Nobel Prize-Winning Author

Identifying With Others: Novels and Politics Today Monday, December 2, 2013 @ 7:30pm Varsity Hall at Union South

Winner of the 2006 Nobel Prize in Literature, Orhan Pamuk writes fiction and nonfiction that invite dialogue and reflection on history and modernity, on national and global identities, and on gender and its politics. He is the author of eight novels, the memoir Istanbul, and three works of nonfiction. His work has been translated from the original Turkish into over 60 languages. In 2012 he opened The Museum of Innocence in Istanbul, a companion project to his novel of the same name.

Orhan Pamuk's visit is part of the Great World Texts Program at the Center for the Humanities.

This lecture is co-sponsored by the UW Distinguished Lecture Series.
