The Shores of Self: Creativity and Complex Narratives in Diasporic Communities
June 2, 2021 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm EST
The Faraday Publishing Company will be hosting their first event of the year, “The Shores of Self: Creativity and Complex Narratives in Diasporic Communities”, on Wednesday, June 2 at 6:30pm EDT. They will be joined by writers and scholars: Alyss Dixson, Tony Medina, Lisa Pegram (Poetry, June 2012), and Craig Santos Perez.
This panel discussion, which will be moderated by Enzo Silon Surin (Poetry, 2012), has been convened due to the number of incidents of anti-Black and anti-Asian/Pacific Islander violence in America, which have been an all-too-frequent refrain in headlines for the past few years. The realities of Black and Asian and Pacific Islander communities are complex and dynamic, and our panel of world-class writers and scholars will be sharing their work and insights to “trouble” (as Paisley Rekdal says in Appropriate: A Provocation) the ways these communities are portrayed in the media.
