'New Directions in Caribbean Studies Seminar', TORCH, Race and Resistance Programme, the Fiction and Human Rights Network, and the Bodleian Library are hosting an event on 'Volcanoes: Natural Disaster Narratives and the Environment in Caribbean Literature'. This event accompanies the Bodleian Library exhibition. More details about the exhibition can be found here.

Please join us for a panel discussion where researchers on Caribbean literature reflect on the current Bodleian Volcanoes exhibition and explore more broadly how the theme of natural disaster narratives and the environment shape other aspects of Caribbean literature.

A light lunch is available.
