Refeef Ziadah

You are warmly invited to this fortnight’s staff-postgraduate


 All with an interest in literature are welcome!

 We’re meeting on:
THURSDAY 12th July at 4:30pm 
in HUMSS 112
Whiteknights Campus

We’ll be discussing the performance poetry of Rafeef Ziadah, the Palestinian spoken-word artist and activist.  


Amongst the topics we’re likely to discuss are: 
the different literary experiences that arise for us when reading a printed page of poems or listening to the spoken word; poetry and performance (especially politics, voice and physical presence), the ethics of receiving and responding to politically-active poetry, the ways history, tradition, place and space are configured in Ziadah’s art.
You might take a look at: 


The session will be guest-led by Nick Hocking, from Birkbeck.
