Often misunderstood as a mystical author that explores the inner life and the timeless fundamental questions of mankind, the political, at times even revolutionary dimension of Clarice Lispector's novels and stories remains to be discovered. In a climate of military dictatorship and under the pressure of censorship, Brazil's most acclaimed author developed a tropical, sometimes concealed style of writing that refuses to appear before the law of patriarchy, a vision that sheds the burden of extractivism and frees itself from the illusion of a mastery of nature. Long before the term was coined, she invented a literature for the anthropocene.

Oliver Precht is a philosopher and literary scholar at the Leibniz Center for Literary and Cultural Research (Berlin), where he researches the reception of Marx in France. He is currently developing a research project on cosmopolitics in the Amazon region. He is co-editor of the book series "Neue Subjektile" and works as a translator from Portuguese, English and French.


The lecture will be held in English.
