Odysseys: Ithaca Writers on Exile, Wandering, and Searching for Home is a reading series presented by Ithaca City of Asylum and co-sponsored by Global Cornell and Cornell's Migrations initiative.

Sorayya Khan (author of the novels Noor, Five Queen's Road, and City of Spies)

Raza Ahmad Rumi (director of the Park Center for Independent Media at Ithaca College, visiting faculty at the Cornell Institute for Public Affairs)
