Colonial and Postcolonial Studies

On Abdulrazak Gurnah: Belonging, Colonialism, Arrival

This special event, held at the University of Kent on Thursday 22 November 2018, was dedicated to engaging the work of Abdulrazak Gurnah: one of the most important contemporary postcolonial novelists writing in Britain today.

The evening presented a unique opportunity to examine Gurnah’s oeuvre as well as to discuss it with him in person, and comprised a keynote lecture by Giles Foden on Abdulrazak Gurnah’s novelistic project and its context, and an interview (by Razia Iqbal) about his work and life in Britain and Zanzibar.
