Thank you for this blog entry--a subject hard to know how to approach vis-a-vis discussion at university here in Japan, but necessary-- and for those I've read recently, always very interesting, informative, and with depth. Will keep reading, of course!
Take care.

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
