Reading Envy 079: Deliberately Silenced and Preferably Unheard

Rima Abunasser is a late-night guest to the Reading Envy pub. Jenny and Rima have traded book recommendations for years in social media, and it was nice to have a longer conversation about international literature, revolution, female voices, and how students respond to first-time exposure to some of these topics in her classes.

Download or listen via this link: Reading Envy 079: Deliberately Silenced and Preferably Unheard.

The title to this episode comes from the following quote from Arundhati Roy, from The 2004 Sydney Peace Prize Lecture:
"We know of course there's really no such thing as the 'voiceless.' There are only the deliberately silenced, or the preferably unheard."
