Anita Anand's 'Swing in the House and Other Stories' (2015)
Anita Anand will be reading three excerpts from her collection, Swing in the House and Other Stories -- from the title story, about a suffocating marriage in a cold city in 1989; from ‘The Dare’ -- in which a woman suffering from alienation in suburbia decides to stand outside her door stark naked; and from ‘Elephant Heart’ -- the author's favourite, in which she just wanted to write about a feeling that she couldn't name.

Social conflict and political crisis in Brazil: the new social protest cycle

Start: Feb 28, 2017 6:00:00 PM

UCL Institute of the Americas

The new protest cycle instituted new actors and discourses that, in turn, elicited the incapacity of the left in power to rearticulate their demands. The presentation will argue that this crisis of political representation remains open after the impeachment.
