15 Feb 2014, Sat 3:00pm - 5:00pm

Taking Trinh T. Minh-ha’s reflections on the nature and process of storytelling as a starting point, the reading group addresses the (assumed) boundaries between truth and fact, story and history and how these boundaries are challenged by the works in Paradise Lost. The reading group juxtaposed Trinh T. Min-ha’s text Grandma’s Story with an excerpt from Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino that emphasizes the elusive nature of storytelling itself.

A public programme of Paradise Lost.
