"The lack of creative commitment and the failure to translate promises about international coverage into meaningful actions means that British television is sleepwalking towards a global switch off"

Chair: Professor Luc Bovens

These authors will explore what it is like to be migrant writers in their respective societies – what are the points of divergence and what are the commonalities?

Kapka Kassabova was born in Bulgaria, and is now settled in Edinburgh. Her memoir of childhood in Bulgaria A Street Without a Name is published in February 2009.

Mustafa Kor was born in Turkey and emigrated to Belgium when he was three years old. He published his first novel De Lammeren (The Lambs) in 2007 and received the El Hizjra Prize of Literature for Uitverkorene (The Chosen).

Naema Tahir’s works include A muslim woman unveils, Prized Possession and Lonlinesses. Her most recent novel Little Green Riding Hood and the Converted Woolf deals with morality amongst Muslims.

The event will take place at 5.15- 6.30pm on the 28th of February in the Wolfson Theatre. To find out more information contact LSE Events.
