Indo-Caribbean Literature and Culture
A Conference to Celebrate the 170thAnniversary of the Arrival of
East Indians in the Caribbean
University of Warwick
26th-27th June 2008
 
 
Between 1838 and 1917 several thousand East Indians crossed the ‘black waters’ (kala-pani) and
were indentured in the Caribbean to replace slave labour. Their hard work saved an ailing sugar
industry, rescuing many British colonies from economic disaster. In recent times, there has been
a conscious drive within Indo-Caribbean scholarship to re-explore the system of indentureship
with a view to gaining a deeper understanding of the Indian experience of migration and work.

Anthologies bring together disparate texts under one title, theme, or
rubric, implicitly arguing in favor of juxtaposition (or “aesthetic
interaction,” as this year’s theme calls for) as a preferred literary mode.
The anthology is often cited as a mechanism of canonization, for it
declares its unique selection of texts both necessary and sufficient for
its declared purpose, whatever that might be. Less frequently discussed,
however, are the historically situated editorial judgments that, by
including or excluding, categorizing, excerpting, abridging, or footnoting
modernist texts, turned the genre of the anthology to their own more or

CFP: [Victorian] Rethinking Victorian Studies

Tuesday, March 11, 2008 - 4:46pm
Sharleen Mondal

Even as Victorian Studies owes much to critical work that engages in
theoretically sophisticated, insightful analysis of the various social and
cultural processesâ€"including liberalism, imperialism, and nationalismâ€"that
inform literary production, the need to revisit the core assumptions that
undergird much of this work remains critically urgent. Some assumptions
about the Victorian period itself that once seemed foundational, such as
gendered notions of public and private, or issues around class identity,
are being reconceptualized, as are romantic critiques of the Enlightenment
and poststructuralist denouncements of nineteenth-century democratic
