Join us for an eye-opening exploration into some of the ways writers from around the world have used stories to think about identity and belonging in a rapidly changing world. We'll read short stories from a broad variety of cultures and narrative traditions to explore how contemporary fiction uses narrative structure, perspective, voice, and tone to capture the social, political, and ethical challenges of the modern world. Art and stories, these writers suggest, help us make sense of complex social realities, giving us new ways to understand ourselves and our worlds, and offering insight into the experiences of people who may seem different from us. But though these works often raise serious concerns, they exhibit a narrative exuberance, ironic wit, and playful glee in their storytelling, reminding us that the pleasure of stories is as important as the work we do with them.
