AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'We have gone to print a few days after the US election, and the aftershocks of this most troubling result are still resounding. Much is still to be written about this world-changing event, but in the meantime here at KYD we recognise the important role the arts now has to play in interpreting these events, creating pathways to change, and enabling regeneration.' (Editorial introduction)
