Adrian Tahourdin on Brexit and Literature

11 February 2021

In today’s Debates Digital episode: What does Brexit mean for literature? Will the publishing industry, which is heavily dependent on international talent and exports almost 60 percent of its product, now have to change? Adrian Tahourdin, until recently editor at the Times Literary Supplement in London, hopes that the usual channels remain unimpeded. Literature is a crucial part of the interchange between cultures, and writers on the continent might now become even more inclined to engage with the UK, in order to keep those channels open. At the same time, warns Tahourdin, the UK opting out of the Erasmus Programme risks reducing the exchange between universities.
