Science and/of the Word: Alter-humanisms in Caribbean Poetry and Philosophy

This session proposes to explore and assess the contributions of Caribbean poets and philosophers both to the postcolonial/ecocritical/feminist/queer polemics against Enlightenment modernity and (neo)liberal humanism and to the invention of alternative modes of being, thinking, and figuring the human. We welcome papers which engage the artistic and intellectual productions of Caribbean writers in the broad context of post-, anti-, and alter-humanisms. How do Caribbean texts unsettle and (re)invent relations between the Sciences & the Humanities?
