Razia Iqbal chairs a discussion on immigration, race, identity and writing

Vahni Capildeo’s latest poetry collection, Measures of Expatriation, speaks of ‘the complex alienation of the expatriate’, and addresses wider issues around identity in contemporary Western society. Writer and academic Eva Hoffman’s publications include Lost in Translation: Life in a New Language, Mike Phillips is the co-author of Windrush: The Irresistible Rise of Multi-Racial Britain and writer Nikesh Shukla recently compiled a crowd-funded book of essays, The Good Immigrant, in which writers explore what it means for our identity if we are immigrants or children of immigrants.
