Assistant Professor of English and Women’s Studies faculty affiliate Dr. Janelle Rodriques presents a lecture on her recent monograph, <em>Narratives of Obeah in West Indian Literature: Moving Through the Margins</em>. The book explores representations of Obeah, a name used in the English/Creole-speaking Caribbean to describe various African-derived, syncretic Caribbean religious practices, across a range of prose fictions published in the 20th century by West Indian authors. This lecture will be live-streamed from the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts and Humanities at Pebble Hill, using their Facebook streaming platform.
