Call For Papers

CARIBBEAN READINGS OF AMERICA

In keeping with SAMLA’s theme for this year, this CFP is inviting papers that focus on the Caribbean in America, with the intent of examining the challenges that Caribbean writers have brought to the American literary landscape. Caribbean Poets and authors of novels, some of whom have been re-defined as African American writers, have been engaged in a discourse that begs the question: “Whose Paradise is it?” The challenge is often equally made to both Caribbean and American cultural idealisms. How effective are these literary works? Why do they matter?
200 word abstracts, please, by May 30, 2016.
