Cuerpo, deseo y violencia en la literatura. Giuseppe Caputo y Joumana Haddad en conversación con Felipe Restrepo Pombo

Cartagena 2017, 
Algunos escritores y escritoras dan especial importancia a la corporeidad y el vínculo con lo físico en la escritura. Esto se puede ver reflejado a muchos niveles: durante el proceso de escritura, en el estilo narrativo o incluso en la propia temática de la obra. Conversan con Felipe Restrepo Pombo dos escritores interesados en esta temática: Giuseppe Caputo (Colombia), autor de Un mundo huérfano, y Joumana Haddad (Líbano), escritora, poeta y autora, entre otros libros, de Yo maté a Sherezade: confesiones de una mujer árabe furiosa.

Maryn McKenna talks to Rosie Boycott

Plucked!

Hay Festival 2018, 

The acclaimed science writer uses chicken as the lens for examining everything that has gone wrong in the modern agricultural system: overuse of antibiotics, threats to the environment, violations of animal welfare, destruction of farm economies and rural civic structure, disruption of international trade and delivery of over-processed, obesity-promoting, nutritionally hollow food. McKenna takes us from vast poultry farms to laboratories, kitchens and street-food markets around the world, revealing how economic, political and cultural forces converged to make our favourite meat a hidden danger. Boycott is chair of the London Food Board.
