Poetics of Home Festival

In collaboration with Wasafiri, Institute of English Studies and promoted via the Oxford Brookes Poetry Centre with the generous support of the Lottery Fund from Arts Council England, we launched a digital Poetics of Home: Chinese diaspora poetry festival in the Autumn of 2021 to connect and showcase the diverse works by established and emerging Anglophone poets writing across the Chinese diaspora. This series is recordings of those events. 

Through poetry readings and moderated discussions with themes ranging from migration to language and the expression of desire, we aim to promote the appreciation and understanding of the diverse voices writing across the Chinese diaspora nowadays.

Event partners include the British Chinese Studies Network, SOAS, Asian Review of Books, Asian Cha and others.
