Hello! I’m Dr Will Buckingham. I’m a writer, philosopher and faculty member at Parami University, Myanmar. My most recent book, “Hello, Stranger” (Granta 2022) was a BBC Radio4 Book of the Week. I co-direct Wind&Bones, a social enterprise dedicated to writing and social change, and I am currently based in Tainan, Taiwan.
