M. NourbeSe Philip is a poet, novelist and lawyer, born in Tobago but now based in Canada. Though Philip does not have direct ties to Britain, her concerns with language, the past, and the question of how we belong, links her to many of the other writers who appear in the series. She will be in a panel discussion with Marina Warner, Matthew Reynolds and Elleke Boehmer.
This workshop series, hosted jointly by the Oxford English Faculty and TORCH and supported by the OUP John Fell Fund, brings a number of contemporary British writers into conversation with readers to discuss how literature shapes our perceptions of the world today and our identities within it.
All are welcome. These sessions will be recorded for podcasting.
