Against Disappearance: Essays on Memory

Sun 11 Sep, 10.30am

Hear from some of the most daring creative voices in the country as they discuss their contributions to Against Disappearance, a collection of essays from First Nations writers and writers of colour who bend boundaries, call on the past and envision new futures. Each piece in the anthology asks questions and shares stories for those who have been diminished or ignored in the writing of history. Leah Jing McIntosh, the book’s curator and founding editor of Liminal magazine, is joined in conversation by contributors Andre Dao, Hasib Hourani and Mykaela Saunders.
