CARACOL Annual Conference 2022 In association with the Yesu Persaud Centre for Caribbean Studies (University of Warwick)
Online

Runs from Friday, May 06 to Saturday, May 07.

“Caribbean poetics: voices, aesthetics, imaginaries”

 Organisers :

Orane ONYEKPE-TOUZET (University of Warwick/Sorbonne Université)

Rocío MUNGUIA AGUILAR (Université de Strasbourg)

Dates : 06-07 May 2022

Online conference

 

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 rocio.munguia.a@gmail.com and Orane Onyekpe-Touzet orane.touzet@warwick.ac.uk before 6th February 2022.
