For three years, award-winning author of We That Are Young, Preti Taneja taught creative writing in a prison. In 2019, one of her former students attacked an event held in honour of the writing programme, killing two teachers. Taneja’s searching essay Aftermath is an attempt to make sense of the tragedy while interrogating the British response to the war on terror and the racism inherent in the prison system. Today's conversation is chaired by Jessica Gaitán Johannesson.
