Ashoka Literature Festival
March 29 - March 31
Date: 29th – 31st March 2019
Venue: Ashoka University
The Ashoka Literature Festival (ALF) is a two-day celebration of engaging discussions and thought-provoking debates. A series of panels, lectures, workshops and one-on-one dialogues, curated with our university’s signature interdisciplinary approach will put authors, journalists, academics, script-writers, photographers, artists and those in varied fields in conversation with one another. Additionally, we will have performances, as well as spectacular informal, and student-oriented sessions. So far, some of our confirmed speakers include Nivedita Menon, Dayanita Singh, Yogendra Yadav, Mayank Mansingh Kaul and our potential confirmations include William Dalrymple, Vidya Shah, Mayank Austen Soofi and many others.
It strives to be a true festival of ideas that encourage engagement with our complex realities in rigorous yet exciting ways. We wish to make this festival a flagship event in the student calendar within the NCR and hopefully across the country in the coming years.
