Edwidge Danticat ‘Creating Dangerously'



Darroch F (2015) Edwidge Danticat ‘Creating Dangerously'. The Critical Religion Association - Critical Approaches the the Study of Religion [Website content] 03.11.2015.

First paragraph: Haitian born writer, Edwidge Danticat published a collection of essays in 2010: Create Dangerously: The Immigrant Artist at Work (Princeton University Press: Princeton, 2010). After watching the BBC 2 programme, Caribbean with Simon Reeve, (aired on BBC 2, 22 March 2015) on Haiti, and after the earthquake in Nepal, Danticat’s evocative collection came to mind, and with it, a desire to write about the gap that exists between the writer, the academic (and travel writer/broadcaster), and the individual for whom trauma, injustice, and poverty are a daily burden.
