Annual Lecture

About the series

Literary critic, writer, activist, and spokesperson for the Palestinian cause, Edward Said (1935-2003) was one of the most influential intellectuals of his time. The lecture series aims to promote his spirit through the continued examination of the links between culture and politics in the Middle East and across the world.

With previous lectures by Marina Warner, Rashid Khalidi, Ahdaf Soueif, Noam Chomsky, Raja Shehadeh  and forthcoming lectures by Daniel Barenboim (2015) and Naomi Klein, the series gives his legacy a public platform in the very heart of cultural and intellectual life in the UK. Sign up to our newsletter to keep up to date on future lectures in the series.

You can watch and listen to previous years lectures on our website in Recorded Lectures.

The organising committee includes: Mariam C.Said, Ahdaf Soueif, Mary-Kay Wilmers, Jacqueline Rose and Omar Al-Qattan.

This series has been supported by the A.M Qattan Foundation, London Review of Books,and British Museum,  as well as a number of generous individual gifts. If you would like to support future talks, please write to Rachael Jarvis on rachael@mosaicrooms.org
