Die verführte Nachbarin

Venue: Kollektivbar ES, Plügerstraße 52, 12047 Berlin

Angela Steidele writes literary biographies of historical queer individuals while also discussing the concept of biographing theoretically, e.g. in Anne Lister. Eine erotische Biographie. In a conversation with Christina Ernst, she will address, among other things, historiographical accounts of lesbian sexuality, the theme of the seduced neighbor, and the close relationship between the biographer and her subject—in other words, “neighborhood” as both a motif and a poetic principle.

The event will take place in compliance with 2G Covid regulations (vaccinated or recovered attendees only). It will also be recorded for the ZfL’s YouTube Channel. By attending, you agree to being featured in the recording.
