Editors discuss 'engaged literature' in Norway

Has literature become hostage to politics and ideology? Must it choose between artistic freedom and political engagement? If so, which side should it take? Editors from the Eurozine network will discuss the notion of engaged literature in context of current political and cultural challenges at a public event at the literature house (Litteraturhuset) in Bergen.
