Festival of Ideas: Dina Nayeri, What is it like to be a refugee?
What is it like to be a refugee? It is a question some of us don’t give much thought to, and yet to be a refugee – or an immigrant – is to grapple with your place in the world, attempting to reconcile the life you have known with the unfamiliar.
Writer Dina Nayeri weaves together the story of her own refugee journey – as a child forced to flee Iran, eventually finding asylum in America – with the stories of others making their own journeys today. She sets out the stages of the refugee experience, and gives voice to those in today’s refugee camps, or who are trying to settle in a new country, and for many of whom the search for home can be a forever state.
