Abstract

In the bustling European debate on migration and integration, literary writers are constantly intervening. They warn for bureaucratic arguments, rigidity and superficiality. They point at the fragility of local communities, and follow historical traces. They emphasize freedom of speech and satire. In short, they are true public intellectuals, fusing literature and politics. Odile Heynders, author of Writers as public Intellectuals, Literature, Celebrity, Democracy, talks about the role of literary writers in the European public sphere.
