What We Don’t Talk About When We Talk About War

When writers address the subject of war, they face tough choices about what material to include and how to give voice to the unspeakable. The writer’s job, then, is to examine what drives nations into war, how civilians as well as soldiers respond to war, and the lasting impacts on individuals and society that are ignored or under-reported. Laura Harrington, author of Alice Bliss, and John A. Parrish, M.D. author of Autopsy of War, will read excerpts from their work and discuss writing about war from their respective points of view, touching on how personal experience and memory have affected their work and their lives.

Issue 5 of CONSEQUENCE features fiction by David Abrams, Homero Aridjis, Andrew Barlow, Anne Korkeakivi, and Margaret Luongo; poetry by Peter Balakian, Martha Collins, Jill McDonough, Ed Ochester, Joyce Peseroff, and Lee Sharkey; non-fiction by Stephen Dau, Lee Hancock, Judith Hertog, Joan Stack Kovach, and Elizabeth Weber; translations by Erica Mena, Nguyen Ba Chung, Afaa Michael Weaver, and Bruce Weigl; and art by Laylah Ali.

We looked at the portrayal of immigrant characters on 79 scripted television shows that aired between July 2020 and June 2022 and surveyed viewers on how four immigration storylines shaped their attitudes toward immigrants in the real world.

The findings? Immigrant representation on television has shifted in important ways — both positive and negative — since 2020.

More hunger, more displacement, more people in crisis, and a soaring price tag: Humanitarian needs and costs will once again shatter records in 2023, but available funding – and the system itself – isn’t keeping pace.
