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. 

Watch the discussion from CPD's April 5th event, "The Stories We Carry: Mediating Memory & Identity," in the Facebook Live video stream here.
