October 24 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

University of Bremen – University of Guelph Lecture Series 2022

Professor Kerstin Knopf | University of Bremen

In their fiction both Dionne Brand and Lawrence Hill write about the history of enslavement of African people, the experience of African Canadian communities, the forging of African diasporas and Black Atlantic cultures. Hence, their literature often revolves around sea voyages, forced migration of the enslaved, and migration of people across oceans and seas, not seldom forced by natural and economic crises and exploitive or totalitarian regimes. In this talk, Prof. Knopf will discuss the novels At the Full and Change of the Moon and The Illegal and their representation of oceans and migration.
