Seeking panelists for “Emmelie Prophète, citadine port-au-princienne” panel chaired by Jocelyn Sutton Franklin and Nathan Dize.
To be held during the 20th & 21st Century French and Francophone Studies International Colloquium at the University of Pittsburgh on March 24-26, 2022. The panel will focus on the writings of the Haitian writer Emmelie Prophète and her engagement with the city of Port-au-Prince as a critical point of departure.
Depending on the level of interest in the topic, the chairs are open to shifting the panel to a “lightning talk” roundtable, where participants will address the topic of the panel in shorter 5-7 minute presentations. The aim of the panel is to draw attention to Prophète’s many works and to generate interest in the reading, teaching and study of her novels and poetry. If you are interested in contributing, please submit 1) a preliminary title for your presentation AND 2) a 50-100 word abstract of the works/angle you wish to explore.
