Silk Punk and the Reimagining of Modernity

Ethnic Media Services (EMS) is an ORA Research Grant recipient. EMS works to enhance the capacity of ethnic news outlets to inform and engage diverse audiences on broader public issues with the goal of building a more inclusive participatory democracy. 

EMS’s ORA Research involves educating its network about the polycrisis and in-depth reporting to explore the linkages between the issues they typically cover and the global polycrisis. In this EMS briefing, Ken Liu (American Author of speculative fiction; winner of the Nebula, Hugo, and World Fantasy awards) discusses the marginalizing of traditional indigenous ways of knowing and his efforts to incorporate them into our concept of modernity.
