Narrating my story as a member of multicultural society

Panel conversation with acclaimed creative writers Rebecca Lim Dr. Michelle Aung Thin and Alice Pung.

Narrating one’s own experience is a significant act of empowerment for a person with multicultural backgrounds. However such narrative is often listened to as a story of “ethnic minorities”, not as that of fellow citizens co-dwelling in society. Featuring three acclaimed creative writers, this seminar will discuss the ways in which migrant or diasporic stories are addressed as a member of society and received without being reduced to “their” stories.
