A person's body affects the way they navigate the world, and their experiences in it. How much power does a body (pertaining for instance to race, gender, sexuality, physical ability) have over (or in) an artist's work? And, with what means can a writer navigate issues the body can present?

By definition, being a writer depends on having speech be free. Yet freedom of speech is understood and valued very differently across historical moments, cultures, and contexts: the concept of "hate speech" stands in sharp contradiction to that of "freedom of expression." What is a writer's responsibility in the domain between the two poles?

In our ever-more-hybrid world, translation and polylinguality are now ubiquitous. Languages live side by side and commingle; new words, accents, grammars, forms of data, are surging everywhere. A writer may switch between languages within a piece of work, or may, like Ngugi wa’ Thiongo, deliberately refuse to avail herself of a major language for the benefit of a minor one. We’ll hear from those who live and create on a linguistic fault line.

Writers often create characters different from themselves. When such a character “belongs” to a distinct, recognizable group—perhaps a minority—challenges may arise. What is the writer’s responsibility toward representing the “other” accurately? What effort in understanding, empathy, research may be needed?
