Anu Taranath with Nick Barr
In Beyond Guilt Trips: Mindful Travel in an Unequal World (Between the Lines), Seattle storyteller and scholar Anu Taranath begins at home, unpacking our baggage about who we are, where we come from, and how much we have. She takes us on a journey through engaging personal travel stories and thought-provoking questions, providing us with tools to grapple with our discomfort and navigate differences with accountability and connection. Yes, travel, she writes. But be mindful. Be present.
Anu Taranath is the founder and director of a racial equity firm "A.T. Consulting: dialogues for justice," and is a Senior Lecturer in the Departments of English and Comparative History of Ideas at the University of Washington. She has appeared on our stage in conversation with authors in the past and it’s our pleasure to host her with her own new book.
Anu Taranath will appear in conversation with Nick Barr, Director of Study Abroad in the UW Comparative History of Ideas department who travels with UW students to study racism and Islamophobia in the Netherlands.
