What does it mean to be marginalized – and who decides where the center is in a shifting world? In this panel we discuss questions of politics, power, society, ethnicity, and family, asking questions about how we treat those different from us and how society acts towards its most vulnerable members. This panel will explore how writers go about depicting people who live on the fringes with sensitivity, how personal experience informs fiction, and how novels about people who are considered marginal are both celebrated and – sometimes – misunderstood.
