Elif Shafak
Hosted by LSE Festival: New World (Dis)Orders
Wednesday 27 February 7:30pm to 8:30pm

And the less we understand the bigger our fears. How can we remain sane in the age of populism? Should we retreat into tribes of our own and try to feel more secure there; should we create new tribes, or should we, and can we, find a way beyond tribalism?
