About this Event

This event forms part of our year-long Formations programme, delivered in partnership with Nottingham Trent University's Postcolonial Studies Centre. We are pleased to announce our November & December events, under the thematic banner – Formation: Land, focussing on land, agriculture, landscape, and place. We will consider dispossession, migration, and ways the human and land interact, and we invite you to think about recent innovative writing about how humans are connected with the living environment and our heritage.
