We are extremely pleased to announce that the 2017 BREM Annual Lecture will be given by poet, performer, thinker, campaigner and Chancellor of the University of Manchester, Lemn Sissay. Lemn’s writing engages with themes of borders, race, ethnicity and migration (among other things) and this will be a chance for researchers across all disciplines in the university to reflect on these themes in new ways, in the company of a public audience who are invited to this free event to enjoy Lemn’s talk and find out more about the research on these themes going on at the University of Warwick. Find out more about Lemn Sissay and book your place at the BREM Annual Lecture by going to http://brem2017.eventbrite.com More information about the Warwick Borders, Race, Ethnicity and Migration (BREM) Network can be found at www.warwick.ac.uk/brem
