Description

The great contradiction of our era of globalization is the way some walls and barriers come down while others are fortified. This panel of renowned authors provided a forum for cross-border literary exchange among authors who face “walls” in their lives and work. The discussion focused on the human elements of globalization—in particular, migration between the first world and the global South—to create a dynamic, comparative dialogue about its media and literary representation. The authors offered testimony, polemic and critique as well as rendering geographies of the past, present, and future.
