Many studies have been conducted on the experiences of immigrants from Latin America and the Caribbean; however, there are few texts which study the full scope of literature born of and about this large segment of the population.

My book, Voices in Transition: A Study of Pan-American Immigration Narratives, will investigate the ways in which authors of fiction have addressed the psychological, economic and cultural issues faced by immigrants in their work.

Examples of topics may include trauma/violence, human rights and gender. Here are a few potential sections of the text:

Conversations about how we can prepare our children for college, and why so many students enrolling in colleges and universities are unprepared for the work they will encounter are, of course, important.

15th Global Conference
Perspectives on Evil and Human Wickedness

Saturday 22nd March – Monday 24th March 2014
Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Presentations
This inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary conference seeks to examine and explore issues surrounding evil and human wickedness. In wrestling with evil(s) we are confronted with a multi-layered phenomenon which invites people from all disciplines, professions and vocations to come together in dialogue and wrestle with questions that cross the boundaries of the intellectual, the emotional and the personal. Underlying these efforts there is the sense that in grappling with evil we are in fact grappling with questions and issues of our own humanity.
