The Edwidge Danticat Society invites papers for our affiliate panel at the 89th Annual South Atlantic Modern Language Association conference in Atlanta, Georgia. The theme of this year’s conference is High Art/Low Art: Borders and Boundaries in Popular Culture. We welcome papers that examine stories and storytelling in the literature of Edwidge Danticat, who has been referred to as “Haiti’s Storyteller.” Storytelling as an art, a family pastime, and a communal undertaking is ubiquitous in Danticat’s oeuvre, whether invoked in the artifice of her literature, represented through her characters, or discussed in her cultural commentary.

The Edwidge Danticat Society invites proposals for 15-minute presentations, and possible topics addressing storytelling include, but are not limited to:

● Survival and/or resistance during precarious times
● Testimonio, dangerous creation
● Narrativity and form
● Tradition and/or collective memory
● Literary influence
● Audience and literary reception
● Identity and performativity
