Tabish Khair: "Literature and Fundamentalism"

Tabish Khair will lecture on “Literature and Fundamentalism: Initial Thoughts from Ongoing Research,” a topic which will provide an occasion for him to weave together threads from much of his recent writing as well as his latest novel, The Body by the Shore. This novel is his first venture into sci-fi and eco-literature, and is a real thriller. It should have arrived in our local bookstores just recently.

He’ll be speaking at 7:00 pm, on May 5, in South College E470.

Khair's work is an excellent example of how literature, and fiction in particular, gives us access to lived history and politics in a way that nothing else can. Please come out to welcome this Denmark-based Indian writer to the Pioneer Valley!
