Description: A creative conversation among (and reading of excerpts by) authors whose acclaimed writings traverse and intersect with Southeast Asia, Australia, the United Kingdom, and North America. Authors discuss how their use of different genres (fiction, poetry, plays, comics) enables diverse imaginings of Southeast Asia and diaspora as complex modes of subjectivity, as imagined and lived spaces and regions, and as histories.
