Claudiu Turcuș describes the reception of Norman Manea’s work and the writer’s life at the intersection of three specific contexts: Romanian society and culture, world literature and film, and media representations (namely video-interviews and two biopics signed by Ioana Uricaru and René Frölke). He will explore primary sources (novels, short fictions, essays, interviews) and secondary sources (critical studies, reviews, biopics, TV interviews), using a methodology derived from the field of literary and film studies, but also employing concepts such as autobiographical memory, testimonial pact, East ethics and media archive.
Norman Manea is a Romanian writer, living in New York City. His writing comprises novels, essays, short prose and his primary topic is the individual destiny in extreme situations (Holocaust, Communist dictatorship, Exile).
