Panel Discussion 2: Cross-Culture or Cultural Appropriation

Free Admission - Open to General Public

Writers have always written about different cultures, peoples, and eras. Even different species! In recent years authors have been urged to be inclusive in their casts of characters.  But some writers have been criticized for inaccuracy and caricature. There has also been fallout when mainstream authors are hailed as experts on a culture, while writers from that same culture do not get similar attention or remuneration. What should writers do? We will debate these issues and try to find out!

Masterclass workshops will be held remotely online (classes in the morning and readings, talks and panel discussions in the afternoon and evening).
