Webinar: Other People's Shoes
‘Other People’s Shoes’ is a virtual discussion in a series developed by the Sri Lanka Barometer under the project Strengthening Reconciliation Processes in Sri Lanka supported by the EU and the German Federal Government.
The discussion commenced with a reading from Sunila Galappatti's essay, ‘Other People’s Shoes: Let’s not demand that people tell us stories’. Galappatti’s essay explores the politics of listening to the narratives of those who have suffered, lost loved ones and experienced trauma in conflicts and tumultuous events in past and present Sri Lanka and the issues that arise in asking such individuals to recount their stories of trauma and loss.
The reading was followed by a discussion between Radhika Hettiarachchi and Upali Amarasinghe.
