(In-Person) Entre Nous: Alice Barbe & Dina Nayeri
October 5 @ 19 h 30 min - 20 h 30 min
Alice Barbe is the co-founder of the international organization Singa and a former Fellow of the Barack Obama Foundation. Barbe works on topics related to migration, engagement, and citizen mobilization, and collaborates regularly with Columbia World Projects, Thinkers & Doers and the Institut Montaigne. She is the author of the recently-published On ne naît pas engagé, on le devient, published by Éditions de l’Observatoire. Barbe wonders: How can we draw inspirations from those we call “migrants”? How can we create new solutions that will give rise to a new generation of citizens?
Dina Nayeri is the author of two novels and a book of creative nonfiction, The Ungrateful Refugee (2019), winner of the Geschwister Scholl Preis and finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, among other distinctions. Her work has been published in over twenty countries and has appeared in the New York Times, the Guardian, the Washington Post, the New Yorker, Granta, and many other publications. Dina Nayeri was a 2019-2020 Fellow at the Columbia Institute for Ideas and Imagination at Reid Hall. Nayeri is the American Library in Paris’s Fall 2021 Visiting Fellow sponsored by The de Groot Foundation. During her time at the Library, Nayeri will work on her upcoming book, Who Gets Believed: Reflections on Stories and Truth. The work explores the following questions: How does truth shift to accommodate insiders of class, faith, and culture? How does an idea become true or a person credible? What does it mean to believe?
