Teaching Nietzsche in Kuwait
After having lectured on Nietzsche in a philosophy course, the history professor in the novel An Unlasting Home is accused of blasphemy. While awaiting a possible death sentence, the professor reflects on her past and the women who shaped her.
Kuwaiti author Mai Al-Nakib emphasises women’s feelings of unexpressed rage against their lack of autonomy in a patriarchal state like Kuwait. Mai Al-Nakib will meet the professor of history Anne Katrine Bang in a discussion about the grandmothers who inspired Al-Nakib when religion took precedence of law, and how a changing Kuwait affects the women who live there.
After the conversation, the floor is open to questions from the audience.
