Demagun ehun urte barru - Anjel Lertxundi

Based on a concern of the Polish writer Witold Gombrowicz ("If in 100 years our language still exists..."), Anjel Lertxundi gathered six writers and translators in Donostia-San Sebastián to reflect on the literature of non-hegemonic languages and its future in a cultural context strongly influenced by globalisation.

This bilingual publication, edited by EIZIE and Donostia 2016, collects the reflections from the conferences held in December 2016, within the framework of the initiative Karta Zuriak.


All the collaborations have been published in Basque and Spanish, together with the originals of Darrieussecq and Zelik, in French and German respectively.
