Agnes Woolley examines what is missing from the stories told by, and about, refugees and laments the way in which the refugees are forced to constrain their own stories.
Agnes Woolley examines what is missing from the stories told by, and about, refugees. She laments what she calls the 'hard authenticity of testimony' - the way in which refugees to the UK are forced to tell their own stories, and never to change them, despite any number of changes in perspective. And she asks why the stories told about those seeking refuge - by politicians and newspapers - are equally unchanging.
