Hamja Ahsan will be talking about his book, Shy Radicals, (now in its 5th edition) at the Weirdness Salon on 5 June.

Join us to discuss weirdness as refuge, weirdness as solidarity, weirdness as a form of life that does away with fixed categories. Weird politics moves beyond the confinements of the norm and favours solidarity with the alien and the foreign, the unfamiliar and the absurd. Weirdness activates a utopian political imagination of what lies beyond the ordinary. It offers the space to synthesise new solidarities and make kin with other weirdos. Weird politics acts as solvent to normativity, antidote to dominant categories.
