Description of contribution: Translation of Hans-Thies Lehmann's chapter, 'Peter Handke: Inhabiting the world together' in Maria M. Delgado, Bryce Lease and Dan Rebellato, Contemporary European Playwrights, London: Routledge, 2020. I co-translated the bulk of the chapter (pp. 352-360) with Lisa Moravec and solo-translated the postscript, 'Handke's Nobel - a postscript', pp. 360-363. I also looked after editorial revisions of the chapter and provided bibliographical references. In this chapter Lehmann discusses the aesthetics of Peter Handke's playwriting and its relationship to postdramatic theatre and the 'political'. The postscript discusses the questionable premises of the public debate over Handke being awarded the Nobel prize for literature in December 2019.
