We’re excited to announce that there will be several papers on Edwidge Danticat at the Northeast MLA conference in March.
There are back-to-back panels with the title: 20th- and 21st-century Ethnic American Literature: Home and the Immigrant Imagination (Sessions 7.16 and 8.16 on Friday, March 24 from 1:15 to 4:45pm).
Dr. Maria Rice Bellamy is chairing the first panel and delivering a paper called “Home and Heart in Edwidge Danticat’s Memoirs: Brother I’m Dying and After the Dance.”
The second panel is chaired by Kara Fontenot and will include two papers on Danticat:
“Constructing a Homeland: Trauma and Immigration in Edwidge Danticat’s Krik? Krak!” April Kilinski, Johnson University
“‘Fantastic’ Miracles in Edwidge Danticat’s Short Story Cycle The Dew Breaker” Kerry Hasler-Books, Messiah College
If you’re attending the Northeast MLA conference in March, plan to see these panels and the great work that scholars are doing on the work of Edwidge Danticat!
