Conference Details and Registration see
‘Comparative Critical Conversations’ is an international 2-day conference to be held at Goldsmiths, University of London on 24th and 25th June 2011. It aims to reconfigure critical to the literature through comparative readings that take account of the nature of Caribbean literature and are interested to further understand the deep and complex relations between texts that derive from a culture variously described as mimetic, hybrid, fragmented, syncretic and so on.
Poet and author, M. NourbeSe Philip is a guest at the conference. NourbeSe will speak about connections, both personal and objective, between law and poetry and how these led her to the “un/writing” and (re) righting of ZONG!
