The Xenia Series
We are delighted to announce the 2023 cycle of the Xenia Series seminars. Started in 2020, as a response to the first spate of global covid lockdowns, this seminar programme embraced the more equitable access provided by online meetings. Branching out of the central trope of hospitality (Greek: Xenia), we have hosted monthly conversations on home, belonging, hostility, travel, tourism and migration with painters, novelists, musicians, museum and heritage professionals, and anthropologists.
