A panel discussion featuring Anna Marie Sewell, Alejandro Saravia, and Ava Homa, and moderated by Carmen Rodríguez.

“In an incarcerated society, free literature can only exist as denunciation and hope.” Eduardo Galeano, 1976. Join us for our upcoming panel discussion held online on Thursday, January 28th, “To Write is to Resist. To Write is to Recreate” with panellists Anna Marie Sewell, Alejandro Saravia, and Ava Homa, and moderated by Carmen Rodríguez. If we were to envision today’s society as a gigantic prison, who would be our jailers? Undoubtedly, the same ones that Galeano exposed and denounced: Capitalism, Colonialism, Imperialism, and Patriarchy. These are the forces that for centuries have dominated the world, created profound economic and social inequities and now threaten to destroy our planet. In their writing, Anna Marie Sewell, Alejandro Saravia, and Ava Homa unmask and decry these forces and the impact they have had on the earth and people’s lives: cultural genocide, state repression, systemic racism, displacement, and the pillage of natural resources, to name a few. But in doing so, they also chart journeys of human dignity, courage, love of life, beauty and activism. Theirs is literature of denunciation and hope. For them, To Write is to Resist. To Write is to ReCreate.
