Alka Kurian remote-directs Tasveer South Asian Litfest


IAS faculty member Alka Kurian, currently on a Fulbright research trip to Morocco, remote-directed Tasveer's South Asian Litfest TSAL 2021. The festival was enabled thanks to a combination of technology – Zoom, Elevent, Slack, WhatsApp, FaceTime, and YouTube – and the tireless behind-the-scenes work of Tasveer staff and volunteers scattered across the world who came together to produce this fully-online Tasveer's 3rd Lockdown Litfest TSAL 2021, offering greater accessibility to book lovers worldwide. 

The diverse lineup of authors included Booker Prize nominees Avni Doshi and Anuk Arudpragasam, Commonwealth Writers’ Prize winner Tahmima Anam, and Women's Fiction awardee Veena Rao. Panel recordings can be accessed on the Tasveer YouTube Channel.
