The Tunisian Revolution. A Subjective Narrative.
Dr Dora Carpenter-Latiri, University of Brighton
In summer 2011, shortly after the Tunisian Revolution I started writing a literary piece which was published in January 2013 (Tunis, Paris: Elyzad). The French title is 'Un amour de tn. Carnet photographique d'un retour au pays natal après la Révolution.' and my English working title is 'tn in love.Photographic notebook of a return to the native land after the Revolution.' The text can be described as a travel narrative in post-revolution Tunisia; it is also autobiographical and comes as a collection of fragments with photos. I will be talking about the writing process and relate it to the Revolution in progress focusing more specifically on gender, minorities, and the marginalised.
