The phrase can you hear me now? has become ubiquitous in the age of digital meetings, but also speaks to global movements for change that call for marginalized voices to be represented, celebrated and heard. TIFA is proud to present a new collection of writing that responds to this phrase, penned by some of the world’s most distinct voices. Tune in daily to hear authors read their newly commissioned work.

Known for her avant-garde writing style, award-winning Japanese author Maki Kashimada shares her take on the Can You Hear Me Now? prompt. This pre-recorded reading by Kashimada will be presented in Japanese with English subtitles.

(聞こえるようになりましたか?)―ディジタルミーティングのこの時代にいたる所で聞かれるようなった言葉ですが、社会に軽視されてきた者に声を与え、その声を尊重し、聞くことを求める世界的な変革運動をも表しています。TIFAでは、この言葉に応えて世界でも有数の明確な声を持った作家に寄稿してもらい、執筆集を発表できることを光栄に思います。毎日異なる作者が自作を朗読しますので、ぜひお聞きください。

前衛的な文体で知られる、受賞歴のある日本人作家の鹿島田真希氏が、Can You Hear Me Now?というテーマについての自身の見解を語ります。朗読は同氏が日本語で録音したものを、英語字幕付きでご紹介します。
