Rounding up the course, ppt and then some


In a very interesting TED talk Elif Shafak relates some of her thoughts about the politics of fiction. Following our discussion last Friday, this talk is certainly a nice way to summarize some of the topics we discussed about.

“Listening to stories widens the imagination; telling them lets us leap over cultural walls, embrace different experiences, feel what others feel. Elif Shafak builds on this simple idea to argue that fiction can overcome identity politics.”
