The rising tide of international literature and an increasing climate of global fluidity warrants us to dig deeper into the French and Creole works of modern Caribbean writers. This panel seeks to explore the aesthetics of Caribbean fiction by delving into conversations on the ways that the homeland of origin exerts emotional, cultural, spiritual, and imaginative influences both on the individual and collective consciousness. Ernest Pepin, Dominique Lancastre, Yamile Stitt, and Lyonel Trouillot will combine brief readings from their works and discuss the rising tides in new Caribbean literary narratives. Moderated by Jean-Jacques Garnier from the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States.

VOIX CARIBÉENES: MARÉES MONTANTES: La marée montante de la littérature internationale ainsi qu’un climat croissant de fluidité globale nous portent à une étude plus profonde des œuvres françaises et créoles des écrivains caribéens modernes. Ce panel cherche à explorer l’esthétique de la fiction caribéenne au travers d’une conversation profonde sur les différentes façons dont la terre d’origine exerce ses influences affective, culturelle, spirituelle, et imaginative sur l’individu ainsi que sur la conscience collective. Ernest Pepin, Dominique Lancastre, Yamile Stitt, et Lyonel Trouillot partageront de brefs passages tirés de leurs œuvres à une discussion sur les marées
