CARIBBEAN STUDIES

THE KINGDOM OF THIS WORLD: HEGEMONY AND THE CARIBBEAN

Given its history of violence, transitions in ownership, and economic exploitation, the Caribbean has become a fertile, discursive construction that is rich in the separation of the “Self” and the “Other.” Ironically enough, however, the Caribbean is a multicultural entity in which the identity of the “Self” and the “Other” continually becomes exceedingly unclear. This panel will explore dialogues engendered through hegemonic and counter-hegemonic representations of the Caribbean.

We invite submissions in Spanish, French, and English. By June 1, 2019, please send a 250-word abstract, brief bio, and any A/V requirements to Forrest Blackbourn, Dalton StateCollege, at [email protected].

 

LANGUAGES: POWER, IDENTITY, RELATIONSHIPS

CARIBBEAN STUDIES

How do successful Caribbean writers manipulate language as a means of transforming the dissemination of history in their literary works? What power moves do they make in their use of language? This Round Table panel calls for a robust discussion of prose, poetry, and narrative works written especially by contemporary transnational Caribbean authors. A consideration of literary works by authors from the Spanish, French, and English-speaking communities are welcome!

By June 1, 2019, Please submit an abstract of 150-200 words, a brief bio, and any A/V requests to Derrilyn E. Morrison, Middle Georgia State University, at [email protected].
