BISC – Literature and Lockdown

Virtual Event

Join Dr. Peter Lowe, along with fellow alumni from the Bader International Study Centre (BISC), with your own lockdown reading experiences for a suitably socially distanced conversation.

Sales of books and engagement in reading groups have risen steeply around the world during the past year and a half, but what does this tell us about how we engage with literature when the real world is in crisis? What does our choice of ‘lockdown literature’ reveal, and how might the pandemic period have changed our consumption and discussion of novels, plays, and poems?
