A conversation exploring modern adaptations, translations and the timelessness of Fydor Dostoevsky’s work
This year marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of the literary giant Fydor Dostoevsky. Join us in celebrating the legacy of the Russian great and posing the question: what makes his work speak to audiences today?
Our selected panel of speakers are located across a broad spectrum of disciplines, including, academia, theatre and literature. A common thread for all is their work adapting and translating Dostoevsky material for a modern audience.
Viv Groskop, the author of The Anna Karenina Fix: Life Lessons from Russian Literature, will be joined by Elizabeth Newman, Alex Christofi and Dr Oliver Ready in conversation about their experiences working with Dostoevsky and why his writing is still as relevant today.
