The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

University of Sheffield students Mubeenah Waheed, Aniqah Majid (BA) and Loma Jones (PhD) explore the concept of Home in Britain by discussing poetry by Suhaiymah Manzoor-Khan and Nat Raha. They also use an essay on Utopian Poetics to discuss ways in which creative expression provides a home of sorts for those who are marginalised and disempowered in physical spaces.

This event took place as part of The Lit Collective Sheffield Online Festival (23–25 July 2020) and is available to watch back below.
