Writers are our Conscience

Writers are our Conscience – PART 1
Date: 8 September
Time : 14:30–15:30

Throughout the history of humankind, the written and the spoken word have shaped the course of events. In the space of this conference, we aim to explore how writers and readers influence society. Do writers steer the course of a country’s socio-political passage by pointing to and appraising the mores and values of its people and its leaders?
