How does ‘place’ resonate with you?

AWP 2018 Panel: Don’t Ask Me Where I’m From

  • Marriott Waterside, Meeting Room 1, Second Floor (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Join me as a moderate a conversation between Mohja Kahf, Taz Ahmed, Zahra Noorbaksh, and Sarah Harvard

"In response to the current political climate, writers from Muslim backgrounds, especially women, are often called on to discuss who they are rather than what they do. This panel will talk less about hijab and regimes and more about the courage to write freely and the transformative power of art. Discussion will focus on the telling of daring, beautiful, and impactful stories about Muslims, ask the question: Can stories about people from marginalized communities ever be viewed as universal?"
