We’ve got a new episode!

Hamed booksIt’s been a busy Fall for the CoE, but we finally have some new content ready to share. Check out our latest episode, Writing the Moment, where we explore the work of Mohsin Hamid.

In the Reluctant Fundamentalist, published in 2007, Hamid carried us into the intimacy of the post-9-11 world and challenges the stories and meaning of fundamentalism itself. In Exit West, published in 2017, he brings two characters and their relationship to life as they navigate the uncertain world of displacement and arrival as refugees. For us, both books provide a deep insight into the moments of history they capture, telling us more than we typically hear, or remember, about how big moments feel and how feelings matter.

Look for more episodes coming in 2019!
