 Things That Can and Cannot Be Said: The dismantling of the world as we knew it

*In-person tickets for this event have sold out, however there are still livestream tickets available.*

Join author Arundhati Roy for an evening presentation and discussion at the Stuart Hall Foundation’s Annual Autumn Keynote event.

In the twenty-five years since the release of her world-renowned Booker Prize winning novel, The God of Small Things (1997), Arundhati Roy has consistently interrogated the meaning of justice in all its complexity, social, economic and ecological. Her last novel was The Ministry of Utmost Happiness (2017) which has been translated into more than 40 languages. Her latest collection of essays is Azadi: Freedom, Fascism, and Fiction in the Age of the Virus (2020).

As we endure an unprecedented global pandemic, governmental inaction in response to the climate crisis, and the intensification of authoritarian practices across the global north and south alike, Arundhati Roy has been invited by Stuart Hall Foundation to reflect on how we have arrived at this conjuncture and what might come next. Roy will discuss the local and global dimensions of these crises and the ongoing resistance to them. Roy will then be in conversation with Farzana Khan, Executive Director and Co-founder of Healing Justice London, and respond to questions from the audience.
