Poetry Reading by Lan Duong and Ghayath Almadhoun
The Exile and Resistance series returns with two very special guests: Ghayath Almadhoun, a Damascus-born, Palestinian poet who has lived in Stockholm and Berlin, has published four books of poetry, and is currently a visiting fellow at the Thomas Mann House, and Lan Duong, Associate Professor at USC’s School of Cinematic Arts, scholar of postcolonial cinema, gender, and Asian-American studies, founding member of the Critical Refugee Studies Collective, and author of the 2023 poetry collection Nothing Follows. Both speakers address the challenges and complexities of refugee experiences through their writing. Almadhoun and Duong will read selections of their poetry and will then join in a moderated discussion with Paul Lerner, Max Kade Institute director.
