There has been much debate in recent years within the broad
domain of stylistics about how to define this field of
investigation. This same debate most recently arose at our last
gathering in Huddersfield (July 2005). How has stylistics
evolved since the early 1970s? How do we define "stylistics"
today? What are its aims? How do we go about meeting these
aims? Can we realistically reach a consensus? How viable is
stylistics in the 21st century? What could be its main
contributions? To what extent is stylistics an interdisciplinary
venture? The purpose of this conference is to reflect upon
these broad questions: to consider what state the state of

I am seeking contributions for a panel to be held at the International
Conference on Caribbean Studies at the Holiday Inn SunSpree Resort, South Padre
Island, Texas; November 2-5, 2006. From Maryse Condé's and Paule Marshall's
jaded intellectuals to Hilma Contreras' Parisian exiles, Caribbean writing is
rich with women characters who are complex, brilliant, and independent, but not
necessarily exemplary. What is the role of the anti-hero(ine) in Caribbean
literature? How do such figures, as Condé might suggest, inject disorder into
established and emerging literary hegemonies? The purpose of this panel is
two-fold: (1) to interrogate the work of Caribbean writers, particularly women,
