The Urban Metropolis in Caribbean American Literature of Austin C. Clarke, Paule Marshall and Others, NEMLA, April 30-May 3, 201
This panel seeks papers on the representation of the urban metropolis (Toronto, Brooklyn,etc.) or on comparative studies of such representations in Caribbean literature. Papers on the writings of Austin C. Clarke and Paule Marshall are particularly welcome; so are explorations of literary depictions of Toronto/Brooklyn as sanctuary, refuge, menace, or promised land for Caribbean immigrants who flocked to Toronto/Brookilyn in droves in the 1960's in pursuit of the great Canadian or American dream.
