Lecture of Professor Piet Grobler: Picturing Migration
Wednesday, 21 March 2018
6.15 for 6.30pm
University of Worcester, Urwin Lecture Theatre
In his lecture, Professor Grobler will invite you to embark on the exciting and charged journey of Picturing Migration through words and illustrations. The relationship between migration and illustration is multifaceted and reciprocal. Illustrators and storytellers have been migrating since the earliest times and, once translated, their narratives have subsequently migrated to new cultural communities and environments. Recent picture books by Nahid Kazemi, Sonia Sanchez and Francesca Sanna deal directly with children removed from their former homes and portray their efforts to adapt to alien environments. Such illustrators’ visual language often reflects their own thoughts and personal experiences.
