3rd 2024 EA, UNIVERSITY OF BATH & UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD Event
In the summer of 2023, we joined Faïza Guène, Fatima Ouassak, Rachid Santaki, Geovani Martins, Insa Sané and others for a weekend of literary exploration and summer sun in multiple cultural spaces in Saint-Denis. The Littératures en marges festival program included theater, academic lectures, rap workshops and performances, film screenings, discussions, concerts and more, all on the theme of literature from the margins.
Program: Download here.
Note: the Saturday evening event was cancelled, and the Sunday modified, due to the protests denouncing the killing of Nahel M. The organizers of the Festival des Littératures en Marges support the protests, and the artists were rescheduled to a later date.
You can read organizers Juliet Carpenter, Christina Horvath and Ségolène Pruvot’s commentary on celebrating the voices of the suburbs in the context of police violence in France here.
