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?

“MeToo” was originally phrased/used as a slogan by Tarana Burke in 2006 to raise awareness against sexual violence against women. However, it wasn’t until October 15, 2017 that the slogan/phrase/hashtag became known globally. In the aftermath of the Weinstein affair Millano tweeted “If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet.“ In less than 24 hours tens of thousands of people replied to her tweet.

Beginnings

‘Beginning is not only a kind of action; it is also a frame of mind, a kind of work’

—Edward Said, Beginnings: Intention and Method

How does one begin to speak of beginnings? If the beginning is behind us, how does one begin again? Should one attempt to, and is it up to us to choose?
