November 24, 2013   •   By Federico Cattaneo, Paulo Henriques Britto, Candice Hoyes, Shehryar Fazli, Ben Ehrenreich

In this month's edition of "Around the World," we focus on art and poetry trends in South America; look at the political and cultural realities of life in the Swat Valley of Pakistan through the eyes of Malala Yusufzai; and revisit Wynton Marsalis's Abyssinian Mass with soprano Candice Hoyes and conductor Damien Sneed. Also, Ben Ehrenreich delivers the latest in his ongoing dispatches from the Middle East: a profile of Razi Nabulsi, a Palestinian activist studying philosophy and politics in Israel.
