Primarily based on the island of Puerto Rico, the CEA-CC has promoted the study and research of the various fields that fall under the umbrella of “English” for over forty years. In addition to themes related to education, the conferences hosted by the CEA-CC have focused on themes related to literature and cultural studies.

deadline for submissions:

This conference will be devoted to the discussion of recent developments affecting the production and reception of New Zealand and Pacific literary, visual and performance arts in a global context. It will focus on a range of issues related to the creation, reception, study, translation and marketing of these forms of expression. Whereas on the one hand New Zealand and Pacific arts are being created and circulated as deriving from culturally specific locations, they have also been received, translated, taught and marketed as part of the more broadly defined category of ‘world’ culture.

Coolies and the Legacy of Indentureship

updated: 
Wednesday, September 28, 2016 - 10:14am
Association of Canadian College and University Teachers of English
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, November 1, 2016

At the “East Indians in the Caribbean Conference” in Trinidad in 1979, Sam Selvon disarmingly titled his opening address “Three into One Can’t Go—East Indian, Trinidadian or West Indian.” He presented the contradictions apparent in competing discourses of identification as the descendants of Indian indentured labourers sought to define themselves in their national and regional contexts. Selvon’s underlying question of how (formerly) indentured labourers establish a sense of belonging in their new environment is applicable to other sites of indentureship like Guyana, Jamaica, Mauritius, Suriname, and Fiji. Another identifying label that should be added to Selvon’s triad is coolie, a pejorative that some Indians have sought to reclaim.
