Hussein Kesvani on Conflicted Identity: South Asian British Youth

28 Jun 2019 – 19.00 - 20.15

Young South Asian men growing up in Britain today live dramatically different lives from their parents and grandparents. The culture gap between generations is heightened by the background noise of global news, entertainment, and social networks, breaking the rules of inter-generational respect and cultural inheritance. How do the new generations reconcile their parents’ heritage with their own experience?

This event, featuring Madani Younis, director of London’s Southbank Centre, and writer Hussein Kesvani, discusses generation-gap politics and the current struggles of today’s South Asian British youth.
