    In this reading from her novel-in-progress, "Douze," Myriam J. A. Chancy -- author, Guggenheim Fellow, and HBA Chair of the Humanities at Scripps College - attempts to narrate a variety of points of view on the lived experience of the Jan. 12, 2010 earthquake, which devastated central parts of Haiti. In this presentation, via text and photography, she will discuss why the post-earthquake situation should matter to all of us and what the consistent, historical disavowal of Haiti's place in the development of the hemisphere (in terms of the creation of national borders and philosophical boundaries) has meant in terms of the current inability of the populace to recover from natural and man-made disasters. A discussion of the role fiction can play in the breaking down fences and walls (real and metaphorical) through empathy will also be engaged. This event is presented in partnership with the Humanities Institute, Office of Public Events and Community Programs & Tuesday Noon Academy.
