Over the past 13 years, 26 authors have come to Leipzig as Picador Guest Professors for Literature, teaching literature and creative writing at the Institute for American Studies and engaging in a dialogue on US literature with the wider public. In this event, we want to celebrate the professorship with the authors Josh Weil and Don Mee Choi, who will read from their work and discuss the civic potentials of literature in a transcultural and transatlantic context.

In 2006, Leipzig University, in co-operation with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the Veranstaltungsforum of the Holtzbrinck Publishing Group, initiated the Picador Guest Professorship for Literature at the Institute for American Studies, aiming at conveying and reflecting on the diversity of Anglo-American literature.
