About this event
A talk by Jay Rajiva, faculty member in the Department of English
Literature Matters: Literature in the Community is a lecture series sponsored by the University of Saskatchewan Department of English.
This talk uses African American poetics to read Dionne Brand’s What We All Long For, a 2005 novel centred on the experiences of belonging of five characters from displaced families in Toronto. Drawing on the scholarship of poet and critic Nathaniel Mackey, Jay Rajiva argues that the musical genre of the blues provides a rich critical frame for analyzing migrant experience in Brand’s novel, one that contributes to the project of decolonizing the study of literature.
