SF&ファンタジー:スタニスワフ・レム作品を日本語訳で読む/スロヴァキアのリヴィア・フラヴァチコヴァー / Science Fiction and Fantasy: Stanisław Lem’s work translated into Japanese / Lívia Hlavačková

トークイベントでは、リヴィア・フラヴァチコヴァー が「科学者」であり「ファンタジー作家」である自身を魅了するこの疑問に対して、考えられる答えを探求します。

Part 1
2021 is the centenary of Stanisław Lem's birth, in Poland, the writer's homeland, it was enacted as Lem Year. In addition to the international festival held in Krakow in September, a project called "100 books for Lem's 100th birthday" is underway in various countries around the world. From Japan, Kokusho Kanko Kai and Hayakawa Publishing are participating in this project. In this memorable year, I will look back on the Lem's work that have already been translated into Japanese and introduce the work that are expected to be translated in the future.

Part 2
In a way, fantasy genre has accompanied mankind from the dawn of time. People were drawn to stories about magic, fantastic creatures, witches and heroes. Fantasy genre is nowadays very popular despite our focus on science, facts and rational thinking. What could be the reason for this contrast? Lívia Hlavačková will explore possible answers to this question that fascinates both the “scientist” and the “fantasy writer” in her.
