Since the 1990s, recent Anglophone Caribbean writing has broken the
literary mold set by the text of the 1950s onwards by foregrounding the
trope of sex and sexuality, along with the relational categories of race,
class, and gender to give a fuller understanding of Caribbean reality.
There is now a pressing need for critical, scholarly, examination of this
new dimension of Caribbean literature.

I invite papers that examine the representation of sex and sexuality as
illustrated in the poetry, fiction, and autobiographical work of
contemporary women writers of the Anglophone Caibbean.
