aslı erdoğan

Passa Porta supports the Turkish writer Aslı Erdoğan, who is held in prison since August and now threatened with life imprisonement. Our Parisian colleagues of the Maison des écrivains, together with writers Kamel Daoud and Jean-Luc Nancy, are devoting an evening to Aslı Erdoğan at the Institut du monde arabe on 17 November. Erdoğan was Passa Porta’s guest as writer-in-residence in 2006. March 2016 she was unable to take part in the Passa Porta Seminar on ‘Need and Necessity’ because of her threatened situation.
