Commonwealth Now: End of Empire

Join New Zealand’s poet laureate Selina Tusitala Marsh, historian Jenny Hocking, and internationally acclaimed author Ngugi wa Thiong’o in conversation with Griffith Review 59: Commonwealth Now co-editor Julianne Schultz at the Sydney Writers’ Festival.

As some in the UK continue to float the idea of reinvigorating imperial ties via a vision of Empire 2.0, will the Commonwealth of Nations take a central role in a post-Brexit world? Or is fated to languish as a legacy of an age now past?


When: Thursday, May 3 2018, 3pm–4pm
Where: Carriageworks, Bay 20
