This week we are joined by Dr Michael Tsang, Leverhulme Trust Early Career Research Fellow at Newcastle University, who will be discussing the impact of acclaimed author Haruki Murakami’s ‘Always on the Side of the Egg’ speech on the Hong Kong protests. We explore the agency of a novelist using his skill with language to express political support and inspiration while averting direct political confrontation.
