The Refugees: A Discussion on Identity & Culture
CPD hosted a talk featuring Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Viet Thanh Nguyen, as he discussed his newest book The Refugees (Grove Atlantic, 2016). Constructed as a series of short stories, the work chronicles the challenges and realities of migration, such as culture shock, assimilation and conflicting emotions. CPD joined the author for a discussion about diaspora, identity, and the role of literature in shaping cultural understanding.
