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.
