    The day of Ivan Cankar

    14:30Lokaal 120.043, Blandijn

    In 2018 Slovenia celebrates the year of Ivan Cankar (to commemorate 100th anniversary of his death). Ivan Cankar was and still is one of Slovenia's most significant writers, playwrights, poets, politicians … In 2017-2018 students of Slovene language have translated excerpts from Cankar's work. Their translations will be published in an anthology of students’ translations, together with other translations of Cankar's words in 24 different languages.

    Students will introduce their work and we will watch a feature documentary to familiarize ourselves further with the life and woks of Ivan Cankar.

    This event is organized as a part of a greater project called "The world festival of Slovene culture". This festival is organized in about 60 universities around the world, where students can study Slovene.
