Read in Dutch

‘Heroes and villains’ is the theme of the first edition of the Humanities Night : an evening in which literature, philosophy and science go hand in hand. The Humanities Night is organised by the International Literature Festival Utrecht in partnership with Utrecht University’s Centre for Humanities. The distinction of heroes and villains is not always so clear-cut: yesterday’s hero is today’s villain, if you want to be a hero, you’ll struggle without a villain, and one person’s hero is another person’s villain. The clash between heroes and villains is often entertainment, but it also has something of a sublime spectacle about it: the clash symbolises the conflict between good and evil, a conflict we all have to tackle on a small scale. What exactly is the relationship between these two giants: good and evil?

Salman Rushdie
During this evening, in four halls at TivoliVredenburg, writers, philosophers and scientists will put forward their views on heroes and villains, good and evil. The British novelist Salman Rushdie is the guest of honour. If anyone has immortalised both the hero and the villain in inimitable fashion in their novels, it’s Rushdie. In the commotion following the publication of The Satanic Verses, Rushdie himself was, against his will, hailed as both hero and villain. His latest novel, The Golden House, can be read as a modern clash between today’s heroes and villains. The book describes the world in which a figure like Trump (although this name is never used) can be elected president.
