Zadie Smith as Essayist: A Roundtable

Join the Oxford Essays Research Group for our first event, kindly supported by the Oxford Centre for Life-Writing (@OxLifeWriting). We will be discussing Smith’s corpus of non fiction as ‘literary’ in its own right. A couple of specific essay titles to read will be sent around via our email list, but all levels of knowledge are welcome! Topics we might discuss include: Smith’s essayistic voice; her literary critical style; her social and political commentary; constructions of intimacy; and, questions of truth-telling.
