  • Presentation by George Alexander (AU) and Peter Lyssiotis (AU, CY) on the nature of their collaboration for their book, The Dead Travel Fast which will be launched by Nicholas Defteras.

The title of this event is taken from a collection of poems by Yiannis Ritsos, Notes on the Margins of Time written between 1938-1941.
