Dr Jennifer Wong

During her fellowship Dr. Jennifer Wong offered the opportunity for university members and the wider Oxford community to use creative writing to consider the meaning of home and of diasporic space, time, and materiality. In creative writing workshops and public events Dr. Wong encouraged and guided participants to reflect on how objects and material culture (objects brought, kept, lost, missed, or remembered), create or challenge our sense of home, and how to express this in different forms of writing. Writing workshops were an opportunity for participants to create their own poems and stories, to experiment with ways of expressing their sense of home—as a lived or re-imagined experience, as translation, or perception. Workshops participants will be invited also to submit their work for inclusion in an anthology that was published in 2023.
