Oxford Crossings Postgraduate Conference - Keynote - Clare Azzopardi

Award-wining writer Clare Azzopardi shares extracts from Maltese literature, including her own short story collection The Names They Left, as a way to reflect on gender, the processes and politics that go into the construction of a literary canon and drawing its borders. The handout of poems read during the talk, along with their English translations, can be found here.



This talk has been recorded as part of the Crossings: Negotiating Borders and Boundaries in the Eastern Mediterranean conference, which was organised by Kristina Gedgaudaitė and Suja Sawafta after a successful bid for the TORCH-AHRC Graduate Fund and took place in Oxford on 29-30 April 2017.
