“Caribbean poetics: voices, aesthetics, imaginaries”
Orane ONYEKPE-TOUZET (University of Warwick/Sorbonne Université)
Rocío MUNGUIA AGUILAR (Université de Strasbourg)
Dates : 06-07 May 2022
Deadline for abstracts : 06 February 2022
This online conference proposes to question in an original way the fertility of the notion of poetics for our research into literary practices of Caribbean writers. We particularly encourage reflective works on the notion - the question of aesthetics, writer’s voices, imaginaries and itineraries can thus be explored. What is “poetics” for Caribbean writers?
The notion of poetics first referring to a theory of artistic creation has taken on different meanings and has been used in various disciplines over the centuries, showing its versatility and its ability to reflect a wide range of voices, aesthetics and imaginaries.
Please send abstracts in French, English or Spanish of 300 to 500 words as well as a short biography to Rocío Munguía firstname.lastname@example.org and Orane Onyekpe-Touzet email@example.com before 6th February 2022.
