Klaus-Jürgen Liedtke: Die Ostsee. A process

Dear colleagues and friends, ladies and gentlemen,
The Baltic Sea has been late in finding its place in European consciousness. Today we are approaching the Baltic Sea in a peaceful time, with largely open borders. The voices we have just heard come from another project, At the water’s edge, which collects and shares memories from the Baltic Sea region

International Literature Conference and Reading Festival for the Baltic Region

On the occasion of the 800th anniversary of the Hanseatic city of Rostock and in a time of new tensions, the Baltic sea region is being reintroduced as a common cultural space: in readings, an international conference, an anthology and a multilingual online library, the open access Virtual Baltic Sea Library, will produce, present and discuss an intercultural Baltic literary canon.

Reading the Baltic  - grant-aided by Kulturstiftung des Bundes -  provides a novel perspective on a sea shared by many neighbours  and on a common but longtime peripheral cultural area :  pieces of literature from many  places around the Baltic Sea will join up in a kaleidoscope of notions and experiences  that will bring differences to the fore , but yet might produce new unity as well.
