The Penguin Book of Migration Literature With Dohra Ahmad

MIN READOct 22, 2019 | 15:00 GMT


Migration — it's a topic that's both timeless and timely, according to Dohra Ahmad, a professor at St. John's University in Queens who recently compiled The Penguin Book of Migration Literature. Migration's "a question of at least the last 500 years, and also the last millennia, but it's also a very timely question," Ahmad recently told Stratfor's Emily Hawthorne in conversation. "I've had so many people write to me, and use the word necessary. This is such a necessary anthology right now."

Ahmad's collection of poems, short stories and other writings spanning more than a century and the entire globe tells the stories of migration in their many different — and similar — details.

Join Stratfor for this engaging discussion about the global and geopolitical phenomenon of human migration.
