Caribbean Journeys Through Time and Space
Saturday, November 23 @ 3:00 pm
300 NE Second Ave., Miami, Fl 33132 United States
Caribbean writers in and outside of the Caribbean have been creating meaningful and evocative settings using sensitive and sophisticated approaches to displacement and repatriation. They’ve written across real and unreal boundaries and drawn on their homelands’ history and landscapes in order to create a broader Caribbean literary pantheon. Panelists will discuss how they create and consider real and imagined spaces, with particular attention to identity and territoriality. The influence of place and time upon one’s writing is known, but what if one is from a place that has many places within place, many times within time? David Chariandy (Trinidad/Toronto), Sara Collins (Jamaica/London), Angie Cruz (Dominican Republic/New York), and Uva de Aragón (Cuba/Miami) will explore how old addresses and new ones have shaped their literary selves and their work.
