The Placeless Condition
14 November, 2019, 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm£3 – £5
Join Professor Lyndsey Stonebridge and Dr Jean McNeil as they discuss how the placelessness of our recent history resonates today. Not a day goes by without reference to refugees and migration, yet the deep imaginative history of modern placelessness is often overlooked. In her new book, Placeless People: Writing, Rights, and Refugees, Lyndsey Stonebridge (University of Birmingham) describes how the human condition became the ‘placeless condition’ for writers and thinkers in the middle of the 20th century, from Paris to Lisbon, and Berlin to Palestine. Last year, Jean McNeil (University of East Anglia) also retraced the refugee paths of the last century, taking in the landscape of today’s refugee regimes.
Tickets: £5 standard, £3 concessions.
