Quote of the Day
Devotedly, unostentatiously, Carcanet has evolved into a poetry publisher whose independence of mind and largeness of heart have made everyone who cares about literature feel increasingly admiring and grateful.

Kei Miller: Bergen International Literary Festival


Thursday 14 Feb 2019, 20:00 to 20:45
Location:

Auditoriet
Bergen House of Literature
Østre Skostredet 5
5017 Bergen
Norway

Description:

Kei Miller, author of The Cartographer Tries to Map a Way to Zion will be participating in an event for Bergen Lit Fest, 'The Unbearable Whiteness of Being'.

Although scientific research has categorically ruled out the existence of different human races, and the superiority of white people, such views still find expression - in literature as well. In her forthcoming book, British science journalist Angela Saini investigates the history of 'race science'

Jamaican author Kei Miller became tired of the way white women perceive black men, and gave expression to his irritation in his essay on The White Women and the Language of Bees. This aroused such strong reactions that he chose to amend it. Saini and Miller meet literary scholar Tonje Vold for a conversation on racism in life and literature.

The conversation will be in English.

For tickets and more information, please go to the Bergen International Lit Fest website.
