Forum at Casa de las Américas: “Foro Caribe: Escritura y contemporaneidad”

“Foro Caribe: Escritura y contemporaneidad” is a forum for lectures and workshops on the writing of the Caribbean and its diasporas, which will include the participation of well-known writers from the region who will be in Havana during the International Book Fair.

Casa de las Américas, sub-headquarters of Havana’s International Book Fair, which is dedicated to the Caribbean in this new edition, is co-sponsoring the forum along with the Book Institute, on February 13, 14, and 15, 2012, at the Che Guevara Room from 9:30am to 1:30pm.

This space will provide another moment to welcome writers, researchers, professors, editors, translators and readers to Casa de las Américas; it is a new opportunity to reflect on the writing of the Caribbean and its diasporas.

This Caribbean forum calls for addressing several key issues:
• Creative writing, multilingualism, diaspora, and cultural identity
• Gender and race: discrimination and marginalization
• Editorial production and circulation, translations and education

The forum will be open to broad participation and will comprise lectures and workshops where renowned and respected voices of contemporary Caribbean writing will convene. Admission is free.
