Exotic England


Location: London Global Gateway

In this seminar, Gerald Maclean (University of Exeter) meets renowned journalist Yasmin Alibhai-Brown to discuss her new book Exotic England in which she discusses discusses how England has always been expansive, open and lured by the East and that its sense of itself cannot be restricted to just these isles. From the 16th Century to now, when we look at the arts, science, sex, food, architecture and trade, we see the east embedded in England. It is a glorious story which small Englanders do not care to know.
This event will take place at Fischer Hall (1 Suffolk Street, London SW1Y 4HG)
