Podcast S2 Ep 01: Refugee Tales – Emma Parsons

From 02 Oct 2019 9:00 until 06 Nov 2019 0:00


This month we look at Refugee Tales, a series of books that bring together poets and novelists to tell the stories of individuals who have directly experienced Britain’s policy of indefinite immigration detention.

IDS’ Kelly Shephard speaks with Emma Parsons who wrote “The Teacher’s Tale”, which is told from her perspective as an English teacher, giving support to a refugee detained under the UK immigration system.
