D l'ecriture orale

February 2, 12:00pm - 1:15pm
Mānoa Campus, Center for Biography, Henke Hall 325

Flora Aurima Devatine is a ma‘ohi scholar, member of the Tahitian Academy, writer, and an editor of the first Tahitian review Littérama’ohi, which unites a group of apolitical Polynesian writers. Her book Tergiversations et reveries de l’écriture orale, which she describes as “a controlled drift,” endeavors to braid together the different aspects of her culture: Ma‘ohi and French. This gives birth to a very original poetry and returns, through writing, to the sacredness of ancestral orality.
