The Victorian Caribbean (Roundtable) (NeMLA)

Organization: NeMLA
Event: NeMLA
Categories: Comparative, Literary Theory, Victorian, Cultural Studies, Caribbean & Caribbean Diasporas
Event Date: 2020-03-05 to 2020-03-08 Abstract Due: 2019-09-30

This roundtable will convene at NeMLA in March of 2020 in Boston: 

Excellent work on the African-American writing of the 19th century has appeared within Victorian studies in recent years and brought a new appreciation for the presence and significance of contemporaneous transatlantic slave writing with the British novel. This roundtable hopes to extend this work by bringing the Caribbean slave narrative (and other aspects of Caribbean writing and culture) into closer contact with Victorian studies and will consider how we might re-examine the conventional canon in respect to these topics.

If you would like to submit a proposal to participate in this roundtable, please do so through the NeMLA website:


The session is titled The Victorian Caribbean and is numbered 17955.
