NIAS Iftar & Poetry Night
25 Mar. 2021 -
15:00 - 17:00

Seminar by Saar Slegers

Saar Slegers will discuss her radio project "the disadvantage of the doubt". What is the impact of international sanctions against Iran on organisations in the Netherlands? What dilemmas do companies, universities and citizens face when geopolitics gets personal?

As journalist-in-residence, Saar’s seminar will take a slightly different format – as a radio maker she works with conversations, not with written texts. Therefore, Saar will present 2 topics (see attachment) and you will discuss these in groups. Saar welcomes your general feedback and (reading) suggestions. There is no material to read beforehand, but to get a sense of Saar’s stories, do listen to the audio fragment with English subtitles of “The Man and the Moon” here.


There will be no discussant.
