Nordic Literary Salon Online: Insta-Brain

This October, the translator from Swedish, Helena Stiessová, is the guest of the Nordic literary salon. The discussion will be about Insta-Brain,the book written by Swedish psychiatrist Anders Hansen.

The event will be streamed on our Facebook page on Monday, October 11, from 7 pm. The recordings are afterwards available on our Youtube channel.

In Czech. Free admission, no reservation needed.

In INSTA-BRAIN, the bestselling author and attending psychiatric physician Anders Hansen employs the latest research and his own empirical experience to show the reader in an accessible, yet professional way what happens to the brain when it’s constantly switched on. Among other things, we learn that we create fewer new memories when we (try to) multi-task, which professionals have forbidden their children from using Snapchat in Silicon Valley, and – most importantly – how to become a happier, focused and more productive person by taking control of your screen addiction.

The partner of the event are the Czech translators of the North – an organisation uniting the translators from the Nordic languages in the Czech Republic. The event is a part of a year-long project of the Scandinavian House: “Nordic literature in the heart of Europe 2021”, which has been supported by Prague municipality and the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic.
