Join us for the opportunity to hear from Tahir Hamut Izgil and Rana Yashar Aybala, two of the foremost poets writing in Uyghur today. The event will feature opening remarks by Mark Elliott, Harvard’s vice provost of international affairs, followed by presentations from both poets. We will also have the opportunity to hear from Dr. Gülnar Eziz, Harvard preceptor in Uyghur and Chaghatay, and Dr. Joshua Freeman of Princeton’s Society of Fellows, on their translation work.

As part of our community’s efforts to stand in solidarity with the Uyghur people, we welcome the opportunity to learn from and support Uyghur knowledge and culture. Proceeds from the event will fund books and supplies for Uyghur Academy-USA and the Boston Uyghur School. If you prefer to donate directly, you can do so here.

This event is co-sponsored by Harvard Hillel, Uyghur Academy-USA, the Human Rights Working Group and the Jewish Movement for Uyghur Freedom.
