Politika spotlights Updike, Updike conference

Professor Biljana Dojčinović, director of the upcoming June 1-5 Fifth Biennial John Updike Society Conference at the Faculty of Philology, University of Belgrade, reports that the May 26, 2018 Politika Daily announced the conference in a top-right, front-page teaser (pictured above), and also published two conference-related articles in the Cultural Section (pictured below). The first is an article by JUS president James Plath on “Updike and Politics” that promotes the June 5 closing panel at the National Library of the Republic of Serbia: “Updike and Politics: Does Rabbit Angstrom’s Political Evolution Help to Explain Trump Supporters?”; the second is the first installment of a reprint from an interview with Updike conducted in October 1978 on the Politika premises, and features a photo published for the first time. Part 2 will be published the following Saturday, on the second day of the conference. Here is the original English text of the “Updike and Politics” article that was translated into Serbian by Milica Abramović, Marija Bulatović, Jana Živanović, Jelena Nešić, and Teodora Todorić: Updike & Politics
