Whether travel stories spring from joy or sorrow, result in change or status quo, they problematize the word travel ... Bishupal tried to renew his visa to study in the United States, from Morocco; they told him he needed to go back to Nepal.  We asked whether travel really changes people, since he's a professor of postcolonial theory ... and hope listening like this evaporates borders.  Special thanks to the musician, Dana Boulé.

All that happens to us, including our humiliations, our misfortunes, our embarrassments, all is given to us as raw material, as clay, so that we may shape our art.
