Penetrate: Translate
Reading Group: Five Measures of Expatriation by Vahni Capildeo

Mon 11 November 2019

Join us to read around female body politics in translation.

Five Measures of Expatriation by Vahni Capildeo is a piece of prose-poetry that speaks about the complex alienation of the expatriate, finding solace in language and 'not one particular language'.

Penetrate: Translate is a fortnightly reading group which reflects the violent slippage(s) that occurs between a text’s subject, its author, its reader(s), language(s) and form itself. The group is led by Catalina Barroso-Luque, a Mexican artist based in Glasgow. Further reading information can be found here: mapmagazine.co.uk/vahni-capildeo-measures-of-expatriation. Books may be available at discount through MAP. Please contact info@mapmagazine.co.uk.
