Singapore Unbound Festival: “Revolutionary Family Histories” VIRTUAL Panel moderated by Aimee Liu
October 3 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDTFree
Political revolutions and uprisings from the left have traditionally sought to expand the individual’s sympathies beyond the family. One of the novel’s most intense preoccupations, however, is the bourgeois family. How does a novelist reconcile, or even exploit, this apparent tension when writing about war and revolution? With moderator Aimee Liu (Glorious Boy), panelists Elaine Castillo (America Is Not My Heart) and Meira Chand (A Different Sky) discuss their work and its relation to political unrest in the Philippines, Singapore, India, and the USA.
