How are “outsiders” to Caribe culture portrayed by such authors as
Jamaica Kincaid and Erna Brodber? How do literary works, such as
Kincaid’s Annie John, show how diaspora has created a sense of
displacement for those living in the Caribbean? Does such post-Colonial
literature represent a period of reclamation of identity for the peoples
of the Caribbean? Connecticut Review is looking for academic essays
discussing the “other” in Caribbean diaspora literature. Your work
should be 2,000 to 4,000 words. Submit work to:
in hypertext form or send 2 hard copies to:
