Title of Panel:
              Representation of Loss and Mourning in
Anglophone Caribbean Women's Literature. Sponsored by
NEMLA Women's Caucua.

Northeast Modern Language Association (NEMLA)
Philadelphia, PA
3/2/06 - 3/5/06

Panel Description:
            While there has been much written about
loss and mourning in the literary and non-literary
works of women writers of Western cultures, there has
been relatively little study of this trope in the
works of women writers of non-western cultures. We
seek papers that examine loss and mourning, not only
as it applies to the death of loved ones or tragic
events in the public sphere, but also as symbolic
expressions of the loss of culture and/or identity, as
illustrated in the poetry, fiction and
autobiographical works of women writers of the
Anglophone Caribbean.
