This day of exploration will combine group analytical methods like a large group session with talks and presentations by our invited speakers as well as a practical workshop and an open forum. Speakers include experts and practitioners from a variety of disciplines as we aim to examine ‘home’ and ‘belonging’ from different angles and perspectives from group-analysis, language education and fine arts to translation theory and practice. Through the interactive formats of the large group at the beginning of the day and the open forum at the end, everyone will be able to join the discussion and take a stake in what home and belonging mean.
Attendees/participants are also warmly invited to the opening of the exhibition ‘Home on the Move’ at the National Poetry Library on the evening of 26 July, where there will also be an opportunity to meet some of the artists, poets and translators.
Speakers include: Teodor Ajder (Mamaliga, Warsaw), Maria-José Blanco (KCL), Briony Campbell, Simon Coffey (KCL), Zuzanna Janin, Manuela Perteghella & Ricarda Vidal (KCL/Talking Transformations), Joanna Kosmalska (Lodz), Loredana Polezzi (Cardiff)
Organised by Talking Transformations with support from Arts Council England, Institute Francaise UK, King’s College London, Ledbury Poetry Festival, National Poetry Library, and the Polish Cultural Institute in London.
