Event Description:
Alexandra Perisic, from the Modern Languages Department at the University of Miami, will discuss the literary representations of debt as related to the question of immigration. Through a reading of The Belly of the Atlantic (2003), a novel by Senegalese author Fatou Diome, Dr. Perisic analyzes the creation of indebted immigrants in the global economy, concentrating specifically on the connection between debt and precarity, a condition characterized by a lack of economic and social stability and protection.
