We’re excited to welcome one of the most prominent feminist and cultural critics of recent times, Jacqueline Rose, as she presents her compelling book, The Plague. Rose’s sharp collection of essays imagines a world in which a respect for death might exist alongside a fairer distribution of wealth. She’ll be speaking to fellow author, Marina Benjamin, whose recent book A Little Give considers the everyday labour and emotional load of women’s work. Join them for a fascinating exploration of work in the contemporary world.
