Mircea Cărtărescu, guest in the series "At UVT, Culture is the Capital!"

The Western University of Timișoara continues this year the activities and cultural projects dedicated to the community, from the series "At UVT, Culture is Capital!". In this first event, the prestigious guest of UVT will be Mircea Cărtărescu, one of the most appreciated contemporary Romanian writers.

The presence of the distinguished poet and prose writer at UVT will be the occasion of the awarding of the title of Doctor Honoris Causa of UVT, a ceremony that will take place Friday, March 22 (starting at 9.30 a.m., in the A01 amphitheater), but also by the lecture that the well-known author will give in the public conference "Literature Adventure", which will take place in the evening of Thursday, March 21 (starting at 18.30, in the Aula Magna "Ion Curea" of UVT), in a meeting moderated by the professor and critic Mircea Mihăieș.

The texts signed by Mircea Cărtărescu are known for their complex and rich style, as well as for the depth of their approach to existential themes and the human condition. His books often deal with topics such as identity, memory, love and the search for self. Among his most appreciated and translated works is the novel "Orbitor" (originally published in three volumes: "The Left Wing", "The Body" and "The Right Wing"), a work considered a masterpiece of contemporary Romanian literature. Other significant works include the novels Nostalgia, The Levant, Why We Love Women, and Solenoid, as well as volumes of poetry and essays.

We are happy to welcome you to participate in these prestigious events, through which the series "At UVT, Culture is Capital!" will debut this year. For better organization, participation in these two events is done by prior registration with the help of this FORM.
