Student selections:

Last Semester students chose some of the following titles:

Book cover for Crippled by Francis Ryan

Crippled: the demonisation of disabled people during austerity by Frances Ryan.

Reason for request"I don't see any sections celebrating disability or disabled culture or disabled authors at King's. This feels like an oversight given the great progress around diversifying and decolonising the literature for other marginalised groups."

Book cover for The woman's courtyard by K̲h̲adījah Mastūr

The Women’s Courtyard by Khadija Mastur, translated by Daisy Rockwell.

Reason for request"A translation of one the most popular Urdu novels focusing on the partition period that has been dramatised twice.” 

Book cover for the best we could do by Thi Bui

The Best We Could Do: an illustrated memoir by Thi Bui.

Reason for request:  I wrote my dissertation on this book, and it represents the community I come from: Asian American immigrants.”

Battle of Algiers - film cover

The Battle of Algiers by Gillo Pontecorvo (film).

Reason for request: "It is a film that represents the beauty and the struggle of Algerians during a revolution against French colonialism. I don't see a lot of North African representation in UK media but I'm so glad this is in King's Library Collection because this is such a heartfelt watch for those who can relate to or want to hold onto that feeling of resistance, perseverance and community. But it's also a great watch for those who are looking for excellent cinematography- film studies students I'm looking at you!”
