Sabrina Mahfouz: Notes on the British Empire
Sabrina Mahfouz has often experienced the sly questioning underneath much of British society’s treatment of her: as someone of Middle Eastern heritage, can she be trusted? Confronting what’s at play here, These Bodies of Water takes us to the Middle Eastern coastlines which played a vital role in the Empire’s stronghold and interweaves Mahfouz’s own personal experiences. Today Mahfouz discusses her beautiful book of prose and poetry; history and memoir with Edinburgh Makar Hannah Lavery.
Sabrina Mahfouz is appearing remotely.
