Essays and poems by established and emerging writers from the region address a broad range of topics, including notions of identity, citizenship, religion, gender politics, family life, immigration, and exile, as well as the impact of the War on Terror, the refugee crisis, Islamophobia, and recent immigration restrictions on everyday life.
