About this Event
Suhaiymah Manzoor-Khan is an educator, writer and poet from West Yorkshire, UK. Her work disrupts and interrupts questions of history, race, knowledge and power - interrogating the political purpose of narratives about Muslims, migrants, gender and violence. She is less interested in disproving such narratives than asking who and what benefit from or are justified by their utterance. Suhaiymah works to equip herself and others with the tools to resist and dismantle systemic oppression by unlearning the knowledge society and the education system have instilled in us. She is the author of poetry collection, Postcolonial Banter (Verve Poetry Press, 2019), co-author of the anthology, A FLY GIRL’S GUIDE TO UNIVERSITY: Being a woman of colour at Cambridge and other institutions of power and elitism (Verve Poetry Press, 2019) and hosts the Breaking Binaries podcast.
