Join us for Dr. Margaret Love’s Fourth Monday Colloquium: “Radical Canons: Epigraphs and Authority in Caribbean Fiction” on October 25, 2021, in Powers Auditorium.
Why do authors use epigraphs? Do Caribbean and European authors use them in different ways? How might epigraphs be connected to our ideas about canonical literature? Dr. Love’s current book project reads the understudied device of the epigraph as a rhetorical tool used by Caribbean authors as a cultural reference point in crafting their literary identity. How does the use of epigraphs in Caribbean fiction shift over time and engage with a broader global literary community? Attend this lecture to find out!
