Interview on otherness and diversity in writing

Author and speaker Luc Reid interviewed me as a part of his series on inclusivity and exclusivity in fiction. I’ve enjoyed reading the other interviews in the series, and I’m very happy to be chipping in my two cents. Here’s the interview.

I guess this interview won’t get many hits in Texas. The GOP there just announced its new party platform, which includes a rejection of multiculturalism and -- my favorite part as a philosopher -- calls for a ban on critical thinking in schools. Here’s the Washington Post article on the subject. Fascinating stuff! I had no idea Texas and ancient Athens had so much in common. I guess Socrates were Texan, he’d have been executed there too.
