The Iron Curtain was a metaphor to those who lived on its soft side. To those on the hard side, it was a physical reality with an ideology, an army, and a body. Hidden by forests, the border was invisible yet everywhere, like the State. And like electricity, it provided the background hum of the days. It was built, electrified, and alarmed with the latest Soviet technology at the same time (1961) that the Berlin Wall went up. It even had a name—the Installation—and it was in the no-man’s-land around the installation, known to border soldiers as the Furrow of Death, that the young, misinformed fugitives of the Eastern bloc found themselves going round in circles until the border guards hunted them down with their dogs and trigger-happy Kalashnikovs.

Taqralik Partridge, seen here in 2010, has been shortlisted for the 2018 CBC Short Story Prize.

Taqralik Partridge, an Inuk author and performance poet, has been shortlisted for the 2018 CBC Short Story Prize.

Partridge’s short story, titled Fifteen Lakota Visitors, is told from the point of view of a terminally ill Inuk child who, while staying at a palliative care centre, has visions of being visited by 15 jovial Lakota men and women.

Partridge grew up in Kuujjuaq, but now lives in Kautokeino, Norway. She’s one of five authors to be shortlisted for the prize.

The winner, who will be announced on April 17, will receive $6,000 from the Canada Council for the Arts, as well as a chance to attend a 10-day writing residency at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity.

The other finalists will receive $1,000 from the Canada Council for the Arts. All finalists will have their stories published on CBC Books.

Un grup de români, dintre care se remarcă scriitoarea Felicia Mihali, au pus bazele unei edituri la Montreal.

„După o carieră de scriitor și de profesor, din acest an încep una nouă, cea de editor. Această aventură minunată se numește Hashtag Publishing”, a anunțat Felicia Mihali pe pagina sa de Facebook.

Alături de Felicia Mihali, în acest proiect editorial se află Mirella Tarmure Vadean, profesoară de literatură la Université de Montreal, scriitoarea Miruna Tarcău și ilustratorul Daniel Ursache.

„Editura Hashtag reprezintă un nou mod de lectură și nu neapărat un ansamblu canonic de texte. Fidelă conceptului de literatură mondială, Hastag se interesează în primul rînd de publicarea operelor literare care circulă dincolo de cultura și de limba lor de origine.

Misiunea principală a Editurii Hashtag este să promoveze literatura canadiană in România, tot așa cum sucursala franceză stabilită la Montreal va promova literatura română în Canada”, se arată pe site-ul nou înființatei edituri.

Primele două cărți publicate sunt „Une deuxième chance pour Adam”, de Felicia Mihali și „L’apprentissage du silence” de Miruna Tarcău.

Éditions Hashtag

#littératuremondiale #diversité #inclusion

Hashtag est une maison d’édition qui se propose d’être plus un mode de lecture qu’un ensemble canonique de textes. Fidèle au concept de littérature mondiale, Hashtag s’intéresse principalement aux ouvrages littéraires qui circulent au-delà de leur culture et leur langue d’origine.

Aujourd’hui, les mots se déplacent plus aisément que les gens, et les échanges auxquels ils donnent lieu aboutissent à la création d’un sentiment identitaire renouvelé. Il n’y a donc plus lieu d’encadrer systématiquement la littérature contemporaine à l’intérieur des frontières nationales. En appartenant à la littérature, l’auteur appartient au monde.

Dans cet « air du temps », Hashtag se propose de valoriser l’émergence de nouveaux récits, portant sur la fabrique identitaire et la construction de l’altérité dans la littérature mondiale générée depuis le Québec ou ailleurs dans le monde. En même temps, dans l’esprit d’ouverture du concept #, Hashtag reste ouverte à toute bonne production littéraire : romans, écriture expérimentale, autofictions, essais.
