Belinda Deneen Wallace, Assistant Professor of British & Irish Literary Studies presented her paper, “Intimate Anger: Re-visioning Slave Rebellion in Nalo Hopkinson’s The Salt Roads” at the American Studies Association Meeting in Hawaii. By using an intersectional standpoint, Dr. Wallace’s essay foregrounds Nalo Hopkinson’s The Salt Roads, where she investigates Hopkinson’s use of intimacy between women as a means to revision and reposition Caribbean slave rebellions. Drs. Jesse Aleman and Melina Vizcaino-Aleman were also in the attendance at the ASA meeting.
