This Verso Live event will take place at the later time of 20:00 (UK)



To celebrate 50 years of Verso Books we bring you Verso Live, a new virtual live events programme. We have selected authors to speak on a wide range of subjects including the future of work, what a feminist city might look like, how our virtual spaces have become the ‘new normal’, and how enslaved West Indian women played a distinct role in slave resistance. These events are free and will be live-streamed to Verso’s YouTube and Facebook pages fortnightly on Thursday evenings UK time, as well as being made available to watch after the event has finished.
