Speaker: Arun Sood

Arun Sood is a Scottish-Indian writer, musician and academic working across multiple forms. He was born in Aberdeen to a West-Highland Mother and a Punjabi father, and has since lived in Glasgow, Amsterdam, DC, and now South Devon where he is Lecturer in English at the University of Plymouth.

Arun’s critical and creative practice ranges from fiction, academic publications, editorials, installations, and poetry to ambient musical tapestries made up of field-recordings, guitars, accordion, chanter, piano, spoken word and programmed synths. Broadly, his varied outputs reflect on and engage with diasporic identities, mixed-race heritage, ancestry, language, and memory.

Creative Conversations is funded by the Ferguson Bequest. Professor Thomas Ferguson (1900-1977), Henry Mechan Chair of Public Health (1944-64), bequeathed his estate to the University, with the instruction that the money should be used to foster the social side of University life.
