"Postmodern literature" is an interesting field of the contemporary literature which contains an attractive frency for the auhors and readers of the texts eluding from the structuralist approach. The text elements: body, form and structure, are like the wooden pieces floating on the waves of water, without any conveying orientation of sense. Polyphony, deconstruction and Schizophrenic image are three important aspects of a postmodern text (poem, novel, play, scenario, ...), the criteria to distinguish a different text from a postmodern one.

About us

CaféLitt is not a place; it is a gathering of minds. We are a group of mostly Persian young students, scholars and professionals who gather every Thursday evening around 19h00 in a café to discuss various subjects and share different ideas, ranging vastly from history to science, from literature to fine arts. We started these gatherings on Jan 18th, 2007. Each week, one of us takes the responsibility of presenting a topic (in Persian, English or French) for about an hour in a subject s/he is intimately familiar with or has an expertise in. Afterwards, the evening turns into a discussion forum and all members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask their question(s) and share their points of view.
CaféLitt is open to all comments, suggestion, collaboration and new ideas. CaféLitt provides an unparalleled opportunity for learning about culture, science and philosophy in a relaxed and friendly environment, and for sharing your knowledge and expertise with like-minded members of your community.
CaféLitt is officially registered as a non-profitable group and is a nonpartisan, nonreligious and nonpolitical entity.
