Professor Sunny Singh Interview

By UCL Faculty of Arts & Humanities, on 16 November 2021

I chat with writer and academic Professor Sunny Singh all about translations, why representation is needed and how important it is to see other people’s stories. We also chat about the Jhalak Prize, whether teaching creative pursuits is therapeutic, and how powerful the stories and relationships attached to books can be.
