Beschreibung

War Studies alumna Malgorzata Skowronska returned to the Department at the end of March to screen her documentary ‘Narkomen’. The documentary exposes the problem of heroin addiction in Tajikistan through the personal stories of Mirzo and Mamadkhon, two drug users from the small village of Porshniev in the Gorno-Badakhshan region. She spoke about the issue of heroin addiction and the challenges she faced in making the documentary.

In May, the Arts & Humanities Research Institute at King’s, in conjunction with the Institute for the Arts and Humanities at the University of North Carolina, staged an international conference on the Cultural Legacies of World War I. MA student Hilary Hurd spoke to Professor Max Saunders about the conference. Professor Saunders is primarily a literary critic, specialising in the 19th and 20th centuries, and especially in turn-of-the-century and Modernist fiction, criticism, and poetry.

Presented by Charlie de Rivaz and Bradley Murray.
