We welcome individual and panel presentation proposals that address Caribbean literatures in general, including—but not limited to—the following possible themes:

  • equality: shifting perceptions of race, class, cultures, regions, genders, sexualities
  • discourse: employing rhetoric and argument
  • reclamation: spotlighting forgotten or unknown texts, authors, and cultures
  • physicality: placing the body/publishing the text in contested spaces
  • movements: challenging the status quo through ideas, genre, or form; migration, exile, transnationalism, and/or globalization
  • legitimacy: considering literature and the law
  • education: teaching empathy and dialog
  • individuality: combining the personal and political
  • nationalism and citizenship
  • hybridity, transculturation, creolite, and mestizaje
