The Event

As an undergraduate in Yale English, Jingjing Xiao used multi-media storytelling to make minority experiences accessible to English-reading audiences. In this talk, she’ll read through an excerpt from her current project, using it to start a conversation about literature, accessibility, and storytelling in an age of growing connectivity but also increasing polarization.
