The first annual symposium on literary activism organized by the University of East Anglia in India takes place in Calcutta on 2nd, 3rd and 4th of December. ’Literary Activism’ is a form of activism undertaken on behalf of, rather than through, the literary : although the distinction necessarily breaks down.
Neither a celebrity-driven literary festival nor an academic conference, the symposium is a conversation between writers, academics, editors and publishers from all over the world.
