The American Way: Stories of Invasion, with Fariba Nawa and Bina Shah
October 26, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
The American Way: Stories of Invasion re-examines US foreign policy with stories that explore the human cost of these interventions on foreign soil, by writers from that soil. It features, among many other writers, stories by Najwa Bin Shatwan, Hassan Blasim, and Lina Meruane.
For this special online event, Fariba Nawa and Bina Shah, two of the anthology’s contributors will be discussing their stories and the events depicted within. By presenting events from indigenous, grassroots perspectives, accompanied by afterwords by the historians that consulted on them, this book attempts to bring some clarity back to the history of US interventions.
