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,
