Across the Wires
How refugee stories get told

Edited by:

March 2015 | SAGE Publications Ltd

From refugee camps around the world, are the stories that the world hears anything like the life inside? How camps become cities themselves and new technology creates communication structures that helps residents keep in touch with their families inside and outside. Essays from Turkish novelist Elif Shafak, Chilean-American playwright Ariel Dorfman and co-creator of TV series Father Ted Arthur Matthews. Other writers include novelist Tim Finch, digital guru Martha Lane Fox and retired major general Tim Cross, along with cartoons, graphic arts and new poetry.
