The first part of Mary Wroth’s unfinished romance, The Countesse of Mountgomeries Urania (1621), infamously concludes with a conjunction; Wroth writes, “all things are prepared for the journey, all now merry, contented, nothing amisse; greife forsaken, sadnes cast off, Pamphilia is the Queene of all content, Amphilanthus ioying worthily in her; And[.]” Mary Wroth’s unresolved “And” opens to infinite possible endings for Pamphilia, including negative ones, especially given the other ambiguities of Wroth’s romance, and the anxieties frequently expressed by Pamphilia herself.

Translation is always a site of surplus. What kinds of excess and possibilities arise when translating works about surplus – of people, languages, oppression? This session explores the many surpluses of and in translation of Caribbean literatures and cultural practices.

“Children may not understand all that's happening below the surface of a story. It doesn't matter. Because even though they may not be able to define or verbalize it, they sense there's something more than meets the eye; on an almost subliminal level, they're aware of a richness of texture, or meaning and emotion -- a richness that, in a great book, is inexhaustible. And the child may well come back to it again and again, perhaps long after he's stopped being a child.”
- Lloyd Alexander.

In order to answer such questions, during our conference we will have to concentrate on many particular issues.
As director Alain Kassanda points out, "the restitution of films should start with access to film archives from the colonial era. Furthermore, Africans do not have access to the pioneering works of cinema produced by the continent's filmmakers: the holding of distribution rights outside of African countries, in Europe and the United States, is one of the reasons for this situation. The vast majority of African film collections, consisting of ethnographic, classic and contemporary films, are held in France and the United States.
