The Breaking Down the Headlines is a five part series that will begin with a historical overview of the late 19th and 20th centuries; a time period which witnessed the demise of the Ottoman Empire, colonial land grabs, the rise of nation states and their struggles for power. With over one-third of the population now living as refugees, our readings and presentations will cover conflicts, power grabs, identity and citizenship. The series concludes with a literary perspective. Historical and current prose and poetry, written in the hand of people seeking a voice during times of shifts in power, we will learn through the lens of a citizen or refugee, king or peasant, young or old, woman or man.
