Fractal Caribbean - Modern Hispanic Caribbean Narratives
Talk with Prof. Mayra Santos-Febres, University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras Campus. This talk will focus on the structural developments of storytelling and worldview in the Contemporary Caribbean. Using the concept of "reticular configuration" proposed by Edouard Glissant in his essay "Poetiques de relation" and connecting with Chuco's Quintero's argument about body, mulatto music and Afro-Caribbean world view in his essay "Cuerpo y Cultura", I'll be discussing how there is a new proposal in the structuring of the narrative in the novels "Dicen que los dormidos" (Sergio Guierrez), "La mucama de Omicunlé" (Rita indiana) and in my novels "Fe en disfraz y La amante de Gardel".
