Are you interested in the life of Slovak books in German speaking countries? Would you like to meet the people who support them? Perhaps you have friends in Germany, Austria or Switzerland and you want them to find out more about contemporary Slovak literature. Listen to Lit_cast Slowakei, the first podcast about Slovak literature in German hosted by Michal Hvorecký.
In the 13th edition of Lit_cast Slowakei Michal Hvorecký talks with Marianna Koliová, a Slovakist and Germanist who works at the Faculty of Arts of the Comenius University in Bratislava. Between 2016 and 2018, she worked as a Slovak language and culture lecturer at the Institute of Slavic Studies of the University of Cologne. She researches the image of Slovakia in German-language travel literature of the 19th century. She also explores the storytelling of various authors like Speer, Simonides, Bredetzky, Mednyansky or Hurban. She published the book Cestopisné obrazy v premenách čas (Reprezentácia Tatier a Váhu v cestopisoch prvej polovice 19. storočia).
