There’s no French writer more recognisable than Jules Verne. On the 150th anniversary of Around the World in Eighty Days, we bring writers across the hemispheres to talk about the human obsession with exploration, circumnavigation, and daring expeditions. As travel gets faster, space gets closer, and the world gets smaller, how do we collectively recalibrate our global imagination?

This programme is made possible with the support of the Embassy of France.
