Do not miss this chance to hear Rafeef Ziadahs piercing critical analysis of the poetry of resistance.

Rafeef Ziadah is an acclaimed Palestinian refugee poet and human rights activist. Her poems ‘We Teach Life, Sir’ and 'Shades of Anger' went viral within days of their release. 'We Teach Life, Sir' is an impassioned attack on media misrepresentation of the Palestinian cause as well as the title of her latest album. Rafeef is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at SOAS, University of London. We are honoured and excited to hear her speak at this year's James Graff Memorial Lecture.
