Reminder: First Sing in Me, Muse seminar today: Abigail Ardelle Zammit

A reminder that the first seminar in the Sing in me, Muse: The Classical, the Critical, and the Creative is tonight at 5.30 GMT.

Poet Abigail Ardelle Zammit will read from her work in progress #wearedaphne and discuss how she has adopted hybridity and erasure as a vehicle for dissent. Her dialogue with Ovid’s Metamorphoses employs the violence of the blackout technique as literary tool and political commentary, selecting and obscuring words from Ovid’s tales – most noticeably from Daphne’s transformation into a tree – to retell the events leading to and following the assassination of the controversial Maltese investigative journalist Daphna Caruana Galizia.
