Professor of Twentieth-Century Literature at The Open University, Dr Sara Haslam, offers new ways of thinking about how, during the pandemic, books can both nourish and heal and how reading can be a vital act of curative self-determination in the face of oppression, confinement, illness and suffering.


This material is part of the Covid Chronicles from the Margins project, funded by The Open University and The Hague. The project aims to highlight the impact of the pandemic on refugees, asylum seekers & undocumented migrants.
