This weekly panel discussion series at the Iowa City Public Library (Meeting Room A). Free pizza and refreshments served.

On September 6, Berlin’s main literary festival will hold its annual worldwide reading, this time in support of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. How can writers and cultural institutions best claim space for, and remain vigilant on issues of human rights? And, should they—or should they instead support more local, specific, culturally-set priorities? How attached are you to (the idea of) universal values? 

This panel will feature the International Writing Program Fall Residents Hajar Bali, Panashe Chigumadzi, Okky Madasari, Wipas Srithong, and Julienne van Loon.
