University staff and students and members of the public are invited to join this poetry reading and discussion from Jennifer Lee Tsai and Jennifer Wong.

The event is hosted to mark the launch of Chinese Studies at the University's School of Modern Languages.

Jennifer Lee Tsai (far right) and Jennifer Wong (right) will read their poetry, and describe their experience of being ‘Chinese' diasporic poets in Britain today.

Jennifer Tsai's most recent poetry collection is due out this autumn. Her first book Kismet was published in 2019. A Liverpool-based poet, she won the Northern Writers' Award for Poetry in 2020.

Jennifer Wong's most recent collection Letters Home 回家 (2020) intersects “multiple borders of history and place”, while exploring “the complexities of being between nations, languages and cultures”.
