The project will consist in creating a series of podcasts concerned with the reflection of the current world and individual problems in literature. The purpose of the project is to inform about literature in an enticing way and attract a new audience (from Generations Z and Alpha) to reading literary works. For experienced readers, the podcasts will present another opportunity of staying up to date with today’s literary scene.
Podcast episodes will bring information about literature and about how closely it is connected with our perception and understanding of general problems. The podcast will not deal with bestsellers but with books that do not shy away from problems and lead us to reflection, let their authors come from Czechia, Taiwan, Belarus or Israel. We will therefore call attention to works concerned with the issues of minorities, climate change, social inequalities, new forms of human and family relationships, human rights.
Experienced editors of the journal will act as hosts. The guests will be, apart from authors and translators, sociologists, natural scientists, doctors and political scientists, including guests from abroad. They will provide another context and broader framework for literary works.
The renown of the iLiteratura journal guarantees the podcasts will find their audience. They will be attractive because of their broad scope, erudition and interdisciplinary approach.
