In this episode we interview Dr Emma Schofield about the 100 Page Turners of Wales series, coming of age, and tensions regarding categorisation. We also discuss coming of age and girlhood, with reference to Clémentine Schneidermann and Charlotte James’ photography project ‘It’s Called Ffasiwn’, and Durre Shahwar’s literary vignette ‘The Girl’. Finally, we talk about the future of the arts in Wales.
