R. Victoria Arana, professor in English of Howard University, will explore the prevailing cosmopolitan sensibility of the latest writing by young ‘Black’ Britons. She considers a range of poetry and fiction published since 2000, in which novelists and poets infuse their work with wit as they evoke a Britain where ‘blacks’ have-from a philosophical perspective at least-all the advantages.
