New literature award emerges in absence of #MeToo-hit Nobel
Alexandra Pascalidou, a Swedish-Greek journalist and author of a book about the #MeToo movement, felt frustrated by the whole situation.
“Literature had to pay the price for what these guys did, and suddenly the world was standing there without this prize in literature,” she told CNN. “I thought, ‘Let’s start something totally different, something new.'”
It was partly Sweden’s reputation as a model for gender equality, democracy and transparency that galvanized her.
“We’re worth something better than the Swedish Academy,” Pascalidou said.
The result was the New Academy, a grassroots collective of writers, actors, musicians, librarians and teachers that is largely funded by a Kickstarter campaign and grew organically after the first few speculative phone calls, according to Pascalidou.”
