The Syria of Aberystwyth Project (Performative Reading)

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


This performative reading was the result of The Syria of Aberystwyth workshops which prompted Syrian refugees in Ceredigion to remember and reimagine their homelands, thereby directly and indirectly reflecting upon: the impact of language, landscape and memory, trauma and physical distance, the renegotiation of space, and the recreation of imaginary homelands. The texts resulting from the workshop were edited and translated - by Naji Bakhti - from Arabic into English, then read aloud in both languages at the symposium.
