Key facts

Genre: Event with live subtitles


Join Nikesh Shukla and Chimene Suleyman as they discuss the experience of editing and contributing essays to both the US and UK editions of The Good Immigrant.

Heartbreaking and hilarious, troubling and uplifting, the essays in The Good Immigrant USA come together to create a provocative, conversation-sparking, multivocal portrait of America now.

Since its publication in 2016, The Good Immigrant has been recognised as a groundbreaking collection of essays by first- and second-generation immigrants to the UK, exploring powerful personal stories of living between cultures and languages and how it feels to be ‘othered’ in contemporary Britain.

Shukla and Suleyman compare and contrast the current state of discussions and debates around identity, culture, language and belonging on both sides of the Atlantic.

This event will have live subtitles provided by Stagetext working with MyClearText.
