In January 2017, President Trump signed an executive order banning people from seven Muslim-majority countries - Iran, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen - from entering the United States, effectively slamming the door on refugees seeking safety and tearing families apart. Mass protests followed, and although the order has since been blocked, amended and challenged by judges, it still stands as one of the most discriminatory laws to be passed in the US in modern times. Banthology brings together specially commissioned stories from the original seven 'banned nations'. Covering a range of approaches - from satire, to allegory, to literary realism - it explores the emotional and personal impact of all restrictions on movement, and offers a platform to voices the White House would rather remained silent.
