The Magic of Solidarity: Shahrnush Parsipur and Suheir Hammad

Two courageous authors have fiercely insisted on voicing consciousness and social criticism: novelist Shahrnush Parsipur and poet Suheir Hammad. Parsipur’s most famous works, Touba and the Meaning of Night and Women without Men, use fabulism and history to portray women’s sexual and intellectual agency; both are banned in her native Iran. The latter novel has been filmed by artist Shirin Neshat. Hammad, a Palestinian born in Jordan, emerged in the ’90s on HBO’s Def Poetry Jam. The author of the collections Breaking Poems and Born Palestinian, Born Black, she is known for her impassioned lyricism and commitment to social justice. Parsipur and Hammad are joined by editor and scholar Persis Karim, who moderates this evening devoted to creative conviction linking nations, genres, and generations.
