NO PLACE LIKE HOME: SETTING IN THE CONTEMPORARY CARIBBEAN NOVEL

  • MDC Wolfson Campus 300 Northeast 2nd Avenue Miami, FL, 33132 United States

Where does one set the modern novel in this globalized age? What are the artistic and political implications of these choices? In a modern world where stories take place across and outside of national boundaries, how does setting impact subject, tone, and point of view? This panel of Caribbean writers with ties to multiple countries reflect on how they situate the trans-national novel, and highlight narrative tools to bring geographically rich narratives to life.
