When history is held hostage by politics, when human rights are violated, story-telling helps restore dignity to what it means to be human.

Alexa Alice Joubin held a Fulbright at the University of Warwick and Queen Mary University of London. Her work focuses on race, gender, Shakespeare, and global theatre and film.
