The Search for Home: a Markaz Review Roundtable
March 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Markaz Review invites you to our HOME roundtable conversation featuring six of the writers in the latest issue talking about their essays as we seek to address the meaning of home. Due to climate disaster, war, civil strife and economic fallout, there are more than 65 million refugees, not to mention the millions of internally displaced migrants in Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, to name but a few of the countries experiencing upheaval. As senior writer Arie Amaya-Akkermans notes in his essay, For Those Who Dwell in Tents, “The tents of refuge are not just a prophetic metaphor, but a political reality for millions of people.”
This discussion includes Yesmine Abida on her essay Nabeul, Mon Amour on the town’s lost Jewish community; contributing editor Iason Athanasiadis on his 20-year Odyssey That Forged a Stronger Athenian; Aomar Boum on his brother Mohammed at home in Morocco; TMR’s literary editor Malu Halasa on Broken Home: Britain in the Time of Migration; and Lushik Lotus Lee on Coming of Age in a Revolution. The roundtable is moderated by TMR’s editor, Jordan Elgrably.
