Guest lecture by Fatin Abbas (writer and scholar)

In the guest lecture presented within the framework of Agata Lisiak’s course A Lexicon of Migration, Fatin Abbas will discuss various histories and stories of migration in/from Sudan touching on her short film “Mud Missive” (which she will also show), Tayeb Salih's novel Season of Migration to the North, and Frantz Fanon’s work.

She completed her PhD in Comparative Literature at Harvard University and her MFA in Creative Writing at the City University of New York. Her first book, The Interventionists: A Novel, is forthcoming from W. W. Norton & Co. 

This event takes place in the frame of and with support from the Mellon-funded Consortium on Forced Migration, Displacement, and Education.
