      Here’s the Thing Tours: Perspectives

      Enjoy coffee and a casual tour of the exhibition with Dr. Giselle Anatol, professor and director of graduate studies at the University of Kansas, for a discussion of Hew Locke’s work and how it relates to Caribbean diasporic literature. Giselle Liza Anatol received her doctoral degree from the University of Pennsylvania, with a dissertation exploring representations of motherhood in Caribbean women’s writing. As a professor of English at the University of Kansas, she currently teaches classes on Caribbean and African-American literature, as well as classes in multicultural writing for children and young adults. In 2011, Anatol published Bringing Light to Twilight: Perspectives on the Pop Culture Phenomenon, an edited collection featuring analytical essays from an international array of scholars. Her book, The Things That Fly in the Night: Female Vampires in Literature of the Circum-Caribbean and African Diaspora (Rutgers 2015) explores folklore and recent literary and popular fiction. Anatol has also published articles on the works of authors such as Jamaica Kincaid, Audre Lorde, Nalo Hopkinson, Derek Walcott, and Langston Hughes.
