Undergraduate Taster Days: English (Can poetry be a cultural and political weapon?) - 2 December 2020

Please note that this event has passed.


Get a taste for life at King's at our online event for those interested in undergraduate study in English.

Discover more about the poet and political activist Linton Kwesi Johnson, the first (and so far only...) black poet to be published in the Penguin Modern series. In this taster lecture, Luke Roberts will discuss his work and consider how Johnson's poetry relates to histories of the Windrush generation in London, dub reggae, the magazine Race Today, and the politics of language and form.

This is your chance to learn more about our courses and what it's like to live and study in London.
