Uyghur Poetry in Exile – Virtual

Uyghur poetry has flourished for many centuries, its richness reflecting the cosmopolitanism of a culture at the crossroads of Eurasia. Since 2017, the tradition has been critically threatened by China’s mass internment and cultural genocide of the Uyghur people. Join Uyghur poets Tahir Hamut Izgil and Muyesser Abdel’ehed Hendan, as well as historian and translator Joshua L. Freeman, for a reading and panel discussion of exile, crisis, and resilience in contemporary Uyghur verse. Moderated by Alana Marie Levinson Labrosse.
