Fahmida Fehmi - a tribute to Fahmida Riaz
Tribute to Fahmida Riaz (1946-2018).
A bilingual talk and reading by Raza Naeem!
Fahmida Riaz is regarded as one of the pioneering feminist poets and Marxist activists of our times. She passed away in Lahore on November 21. The talk will shed light on what made her such an iconic figure of the 20th century in both literature and politics/activism and why her fiction and translation work needs to be taken as seriously as her resistance poetry. It will be based on close readings of her work, as well as BILINGUAL readings of her selected poems in Urdu and the speaker's own English translations of her work.
