Lecture: Dr. Faith Smith (Brandeis University)
In Time? Out of time? Marking Time in Caribbean Aesthetics

Using British Caribbean fiction and poetry of the first decade of the twentieth century as its focal point, this talk asks how time (retrospection, waiting, belatedness, futurity, expiration) shapes notions of inheritance, accumulation, and sovereignty.

Faith Smith is an Associate Professor of African and African American Studies, and of English, at Brandeis University. Her book “Strolling in the Ruins: The Caribbean’s Non-Sovereign Modern in the Early Twentieth Century” is forthcoming from Duke University Press. Her new project, “DreadKin,” is a study of 21st-century literary and visual culture and its mappings of pasts and futures, as well as genealogies of kinship and intimacy, in the context of the Caribbean’s complex experiences with sovereignty in our current global moment.
