Trans Caribbean Seminar at American Comparative Literature Association Annual Conference

In "The Caribbean and Transvestism," Mayra Santos Febres personifies the Caribbean as a transvestite, a Siren born when Europeans declared the existence of the islands and thus began the process of dressing the Caribbean in a set of identities imposed from elsewhere. Santos Febres explains that against a world of "fixed categories, of demarcated identities, histories of liberation and nation-state foundation, we Caribbean folk, perceive our 'oddity.' We posture as heirs to cultures which are not our own, we negate identities we never really got to know, we think ourselves citizens and natives of countries where we have never lived" (161).

"Queering Diasporic (Counter) Ecologies: Charting Interplace-Based Webs of Relation"

updated: 
Monday, August 24, 2015 - 4:10pm
Dr. Jessica Best/ Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) 2016 Conference

Bridging the fields of queer ecology, transnational feminist theory, diaspora studies, and comparative literature, this panel invites proposals from literary scholars who perform "counter-topographic" readings of diasporic literature pertaining to ecological, interspecies, and interplace-based themes. Some questions might include: What does "queer ecology" mean in the context of diasporic literature? How do diasporic texts engage with issues of ecological consciousness? How are rural/urban imaginaries re-defined through diasporic consciousness? Is it possible to trace rural and urban communities/continuities across nation-states? How are human/interspecies relationships redefined in such diasporic imaginings?
