Language and violence in Donetsk

I’m in east Ukraine, where I’ll be participating in the first IZOLYATSIA literature festival in Donetsk, 23-25 April.

The topic, Language and Violence,  could not be more timely. I’m here to launch the Ukrainian translation of my book about Crimean Tatars, Dream Land. In a city that has been taken over by self-confessed pro-Russian separatists, in the week that Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Jemilev was denied access to Russian-controlled Crimea... It should be interesting.
