The debate organized by Dr. Ondřej Skovajsa from East and Central European Studies at CU FA aims to discuss Henry Miller’s (1891–1980) work from today’s perspective. It will take place on 31 March 2023, 6:00–8:00 pm in the main building of CU FA, (nám. Jana Palacha 1/2; Room 326, 3rd Floor).
The Prague debate marks the centenary of the moment Miller met June Edith Mansfield in New York in 1923 who persuaded him to leave his job at Western Union, take a trip to Europe, and pursue writing.
The debate is also accessible via Zoom link.
