[UPDATE] CFP Edited Collection- Religion, Resistance and Gender in Caribbean Cultural Production , Deadline October 1

full name / name of organization: 
Jennifer Donahue

We are seeking essays for an edited collection entitled Religion, Resistance and Gender in Caribbean Cultural Production. The collection aims to add to the understanding of the Caribbean region by studying the connection between religion, resistance and gender in Caribbean literature, film and music. In particular, the collection will develop dialogue on Caribbean literature by and about women and will examine how creative expression functions as a form of subversion.

We are assembling essays that examine how cultural production captures the multifaceted social, cultural and political life of the Caribbean region. Overall, the project will reflect upon how Caribbean cultural production presents alternative histories and disputes an idyllic view of the region. The goal of the volume is to bring together interdisciplinary research to illustrate
the vibrancy of Caribbean women's writing and the intersectionality inherent in Caribbean creative expression.

To submit, send a CV and 500-word abstract to Bonnie Wasserman (bwasserman@email.arizona.edu) AND Jennifer Donahue (jenniferdonahue@email.arizona.edu) by October 1, 2015. We will begin evaluating proposals shortly thereafter with 7,000-8,000 word essays due by December 1.
