The Quarantine Hotline #4 — Yvette Greslé

A new interview series in which we beat the lockdown blues reaching out to friends for a nice and informal telephone chat. In our third episode, Fernando Sdrigotti talks to Yvette Greslé, who is currently in lockdown in London, UK.

Some of the topics discussed: the self as a launching pad for exploring political and societal issues, the shortcomings of academia, and her book of memoirs / essays, Unearthed.
