Faculty of Modern Language Studies of the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań and the City of Poznań invite you to an open lecture entitled "It's easy for me to personate the woman. Desires, longings, successes, failures", which will be delivered by Prof. Peter Stamm. The lecture will be held on November 16, 2022 at 6:00 pm in room C3, Collegium Novum, Al. Niepodległości 4, in Poznań.

Prof. Peter Stamm is a respected theorist of poetry (he delivered lectures on the theory of poetry not only at the University of Zurich in Switzerland, but also at German universities: at the Higher Vocational School in Wiesbaden and at the University of Bamberg). In 2018 he was a guest professor at the University of Bern, where he gave lectures on world literature. Moreover, Peter Stamm is a contemporary, well-thought-of Swiss journalist and writer. He worked, among others, for such newspapers as "Neue Zürcher Zeitung", "Tages-Anzeiger", "Weltwoche", as well as for the satirical magazine "Nebelspalter". Peter Stamm also studied psychology with psychopathology in New York City and there he served an apprenticeship in many different psychiatric clinics. He decided to study psychology, guided by his literary interests: He wanted to learn much more about people than is presented in literature. The acquired knowledge and experience translate into the subject area of Stamm's literary texts, who mainly writes about people and interpersonal relationships. The recurring themes in his work are diverse possibilities of love relations, the impossibility of love, distance and closeness, as well as the relationship between the image and reality. At the same time, the content is not the focal point in literary work, but the way in which something is told. Stamm's texts have been translated into 39 languages. Peter Stamm has received numerous prestigious literary awards for his literary work (including Swiss Schiller Foundation Award, Aleman Literary Award, Man Booker International Prize, Schweizer Buchpreis).
