Deepak Unnikrishnan is a writer from Abu Dhabi. His book Temporary People, a work of fiction about Gulf narratives steeped in Malayalee and South Asian lingo, won the inaugural Restless Books Prize for New Immigrant Writing, the Hindu Prize, and the Moore Prize. As a writer/professor/walker he is particularly interested in the role of memory, left-behind stories and language(s) in transient/ephemeral spaces, especially when residents aren't required/expected to belong.


Unnikrishnan will join us virtually at the Center for Humanities for Tufts to read from his work and partake in a conversation with our students and faculty, moderated by CHAT fellow Dr. Mona Kareem.
