My article, “Listening to a Listening: The Disruptive Jazz Poetics of Dionne Brand’s Ossuaries (a call towards freedom)” is now out in MaComère’s most recent issue, Volume 14 Numbers 1 & 2 (2013-‐2014), titled Critical Perspectives on Dionne Brand.
MaComère is the first journal to publish an issue dedicated to providing sustained, critical focus on Brand’s works. For over thirty years, Dionne Brand has been testing the capacity of language to address ethical questions of global consequence. Her work spans a wide range of genres, including poetry, prose (novels and short stories), the essay and documentary film. Poet Laureate for the City of Toronto from 2009 to 2012, Brand has won many awards for her writing, including the prestigious Griffin Poetry Prize in 2011 for her narrative poem Ossuaries.
