Event description

Description


Public conversation with Jane O. Newman followed by a performance based on Agbabi's work with refugees

Patience Agbabi is a British poet and performer. Agbabi began performing on the London club circuit in 1995. As Canterbury Laureate from July 2009 to December 2010, Agbabi developed a full-length poetry collection based on Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, and her 2014 Telling Tales mines Chaucer for a twenty-first century take on the characters, its poetry, and its performance elements.

Co-sponsored by the International Center for Writing and Translation, Humanities Core, the UCI Shakespeare Center, International Studies, and Illuminations.
