The second of two events in the series Remnants of the Iraq Wars: Iraqi Literature Twenty Years after 9/11
Ever since the US-led invasion of Iraq, local and diaspora authors have been engaging with new aesthetics of corporeality. In this seminar, Hanan Jasim Khammas, CCL Visiting Doctoral Scholar, in discussion with Ikram Masmoudi (University of Delaware) and Hanna Simpson (University of Oxford), reviews aspects of corporeality in contemporary Iraqi fiction and shows how new representation of the body suggest a development in the perceptions of the body as a cultural sign.
For the first event in the series Remnants of the Iraq Wars: Iraqi Literature Twenty Years after 9/11, see Iraq: Corporeality & Memory. Iraqi literary production, twenty years after the 9/11 attacks. Attendance is free but booking is essential.
