Ajay Navaria, Jim Mallinson, Mark Singleton, Mrinal Pande and Yassmin Abdel-Magied in conversation with Manu Joseph

Is the rooted imagination truer than the borrowed one? Can the values of empathy outweigh identity thefts and exotic stereotyping? A crucial session that debates who holds the copyright on authenticity across geographies and cultural landscapes.
