This year Brighton’s Big Read welcomes author Moshin Hamid to read from his Booker shortlisted novel Exit West (2017). To coincide with this event Brighton’s C21 Research invites papers on representations of refugees in contemporary writing. Focusing on work that is written by and about refugees we seek papers that examine the varied ways that refugeeness is represented in the contemporary moment. We encourage contributors to consider what is at stake in these representations. What are the relations between textual representation and real-world refugees? How does the act of writing enact or trouble the conditions of hospitality, exclusion and/or risk that shape the refugee experience?

The defining qualities of trash can change from moment to moment. Who gets to discard detritus, and who is thrown into to the garbage can? Whether referring to cast-off material or undesirable aesthetics and affects, “trash” is designed, regulated, and disposed of by social hierarchies. Consumer culture manufactures trash–both the literal waste that lingers in landfills and the lowbrow schlock produced by executives in corporate boardrooms. But can trash also refuse Western power structures and the white, masculinist heteronorms inherent to them?
