Coolies and the Legacy of Indentureship

At the “East Indians in the Caribbean Conference” in Trinidad in 1979, Sam Selvon disarmingly titled his opening address “Three into One Can’t Go—East Indian, Trinidadian or West Indian.” He presented the contradictions apparent in competing discourses of identification as the descendants of Indian indentured labourers sought to define themselves in their national and regional contexts. Selvon’s underlying question of how (formerly) indentured labourers establish a sense of belonging in their new environment is applicable to other sites of indentureship like Guyana, Jamaica, Mauritius, Suriname, and Fiji. Another identifying label that should be added to Selvon’s triad is coolie, a pejorative that some Indians have sought to reclaim.

How have authors represented island worlds from the Antarctic to Manhattan, from the islands of the climate justice threatened mid-Atlantic coast to those of the Pacific rim, from romanticized islands off the coast of Maine, Scotland, or Alaska to the enormous islands of Australia, the United Kingdom, and Japan? Ecocriticism and landscape theory have not focused on the intersection of water and land, especially when water surrounds land. Literary representations of islands offer a novel and fruitful focus for ecological investigation.

Cultural institutions are custodians of important collections of the material and natural world. They are repositories of material culture that reflect the cultures and practices of humanity and the natural world, revealing the fantastic, the foibles and the strange, in addition to the efforts and products of great ingenuity. Such collections, in various formats from the ephemeral to the digital, from the bespoke to the mass produced, are accessed by many different publics, including those seeking to understand or connect with elements of popular culture.

This two-day symposium will be devoted to the discussion of recent developments affecting the production and reception of New Zealand and Pacific literatures in a global context and will focus on a range of issues related to the reading, writing, teaching, translating and marketing of these literatures. Whereas on the one hand New Zealand and Pacific texts are being written, read and circulated as deriving from a culturally specific location, they have also been received, translated, taught and marketed as part of the less narrowly defined category of world literature.

Victorian-Modernism. An unlikely match that many might consider intrinsically oxymoronic. In this panel, we invite Victorian and Modernist literary scholars to a productive conversation with a dual purpose. First, to trouble the boundaries between these two periods through papers that treat Victorian and Modernist literary texts as companions rather than as strictly periodized texts in opposition. Second, to examine representations of the city as a key site that initiates this dialogue.
