Jennifer Langer: The Search
25 October 6:00 pm
Dr Jennifer Langer in conversation with fellow poet Dr Aviva Dautch about her debut poetry collection The Search & about Exiled Writers Ink
The Search by Jennifer Langer is an exploration of the poet’s complex sense of identity as the daughter of German Jewish refugees who fled Nazi Germany for Britain. Crucially, her sensibility of otherness is dialogically engaged with contemporary refugees and the oppressed. Born of the history of loss and of refugee roots, the poet dreams of a lost world attempting to snatch at fragments and striving to create a narrative yet she is also compelled to confront current tensions arising from the diverse facets of this identity.
Jennifer is founding director of Exiled Writers Ink which brings together established and developing migrant and refugee writers from repressive regimes and war-torn situations. Established in 2000, it is an ever-expanding organisation that provides a space for exiled writers to be heard, develops and promotes their creative literary expression, and advocates human rights through literature and literary activism.
