MSc. Student-led Series

In Discussion with Gulwali Passarlay

Tuesday 28th May 2019
Queen Elizabeth House, 3, Mansfield Road, Oxford, OX1 3TB

Join us for a conversation between Gulwali Passarlay and Professor Elleke Boehmer on Gulwali’s award-winning book The Lightless Sky (2016), in which he narrates his journey to safety as a child refugee.

Gulwali is an Afghan refugee currently residing in the UK. He graduated from the University of Manchester in Politics and International Relations. He is a successful author and TEDx speaker.

Gulwali will be in discussion with Elleke Boehmer, who is Professor of World Literature at the English Faculty, Oxford. She is Director of the Oxford Centre for Life-Writing and was the Director of TORCH 2015-17. She is a founding figure in the field of colonial and postcolonial studies and is internationally known for her research in anglophone literatures of empire and anti-empire. She is also a novelist and short story writer, most recently of The Shouting in the Dark (2015).

The event is part of a student-led seminar series. Seats are reserved for students in (forced) migration studies at ODID and their questions will be given priority.

Other members of the University, along with the general public, are most welcome to attend and to take part in the conversation. Registration on Eventbrite is compulsory for non-QEH members:
