UEA London Lectures 2018

Placeless people: rights, writing and refugees

Prof Lyndsey Stonebridge, UEA School of History

Regent Street Cinema, 309 Regent Street, London, W1B 2UW

Please note that this event is now fully booked. You can still watch the lecture live on our Facebook page or catch up afterwards on YouTube.

In 1944, the political philosopher, Hannah Arendt wrote: ‘Everywhere the word ‘exile’, which once had an undertone of almost sacred awe, now provokes the idea of something simultaneously suspicious and unfortunate.’ Today’s refugee crisis is the latest chapter in the modern history of mass displacement that stretches back to the beginning of the last century. Over that time, not only have people been forced to move but perceptions of the stranger, the exile, host and home have shifted too. In this talk, Prof Lyndsey Stonebridge will show how the meanings of exile have changed over the last one hundred years through the words of the writers and thinkers who experienced it most intensely.


The UEA London Lectures are an annual series of talks highlighting the impactful research taking place at the University of East Anglia, presented in London. They are free and open to all, but booking is essential. Please note that this event is now fully booked.
