DESCRIPTION

In the wake of growing nativism in the world today, how do these writers consider the notions of belonging and not belonging in their works? Who or what determines the right to belong, and how should we discuss the nuances involved in acts of staying, moving, and settling?

This session is made possible with the assistance of the High Commission of Canada and the Canada Council for the Arts.
