Elif Shafak

Nottingham welcomes Elif Shafak , internationally acclaimed author and political commentator. This lecture aims to provide a platform for leading writers and thinkers to share their ideas and promote Nottingham city’s wide ranging expertise on international literature, literacy and the wider creative economy to a variety of audiences nationally and internationally.

In her lecture Elif Shafak will talk about literature in the context of gender equality and reflect on the individual and multi-layered experiences of women.  She will talk about what reading means to her in private and professional life and delve into how it plays a role not just in enabling choice and action, but also in helping us to understand the perspective of others.
