Professor Kaneesha Parsard on Lalhibari Sharma
(in collaboration with the Working Group on Contemporary Migration: Poetics, Theory, Practice)
Please read the attached excerpt from Lalhibari Sharma’s I Even Regret Night in preparation for our discussion: Sharma, I Even Regret Night Holi Songs
Professor Kaneesha Parsard will concentrate her introduction on the two sections, “The Tale of Demarara” and “Demarara’s Condition” – the attached excerpt includes the further section, “Transliteration for Chauntal Singers” and the Translator’s Note as we thought these would also be interesting/useful
Refreshments will be provided, and the discussion is free and open to all. We hope to see you there!
