Event Details

Migrant London in the Age of Neoliberalism

Brian Chikwava in conversation with Rachael Gilmour

 

For more than the past hundred years Queen Mary has existed in the heart of migrant London, and the College has an impressive history of researching migration as a social phenomenon and in intervening in public debate. Given the intensification of migration in the present epoch, it is timely to re-launch the Centre and to invite those concerned about migration, from QM and from further afield, to attend this first event in what we hope will signal a revivified future for the Centre.

At this re-launch Brian Chikwava will address the question of migrant labour in contemporary London. He is the author of the magnificent novel, Harare North, published by Vintage in 2009, which re-imagines the hallucinogenic, dispossessed lives of Zimbabwean migrants and refugees in Brixton. As Maggie Gee has noted, this is fiction which ‘turns the London you know upside down’. He will be in conversation with Rachael Gilmour of the School of English and Drama.

 

A drinks reception will follow.
