[WITHOUT PRONOUNS] is a reading and conversation series for queer-feminist, intersectional content. New and as yet little-known voices have their say here – without genre restriction. Leonie Hoh and Jennifer de Negri initiated the platform to give a space to authors who are marginalized or fall through the cracks of the established literary establishment – because they don’t find a place in it or don’t want to. In addition to the readings, the moderator at each event takes on a literary classic, viewed through a queer-feminist, intersectional lens (based on the Bechdel Test). Presented in this way are new voices as well as new perspectives on the reception of the literary canon and the discussion of normative structures.
