Stories grant us the power to create parallel universes within which we may explore ourselves and our world, including examining our social and political landscapes. Join award-winning Irish author Audrey Magee, Indian American poet, translator and writer Ravi Shankar, and Indonesian writer-activist Felix K Nesi as they unpack how they interrogate dominant political systems and their impact on the ordinary person throughout their works.

Penulis Irlandia pemenang berbagai penghargaan Audrey Magee, penyair dan penulis Amerika Ravi Shankar, dan penulis-aktivis Indonesia Felix K Nesi akan membongkar bagaimana mereka menginterogasi sistem politik yang dominan dan dampaknya terhadap orang-orang biasa dalam karya mereka.
