In this week’s program we discuss the immigrant’s voice in Malta, with a particular look at local literature and how it is mediated in popular discourse in the media.

To discuss this, we spoke to Jean Paul Borg, author of the short story collection Mhux Nies and previously active in non-governmental organization Integra, as well as Dr Neil Falzon, director and founder of the aditus Foundation. We spoke about their recent publications, overcoming clichés and otherness and the spaces open to the authentic expression of the immigrant experience.
