The study of Caribbean literatures routinely entails discussions of relations between the islands and other global communities. Many Caribbean authors have lived in other parts of the world and are keenly aware of a range of views of their homelands by outsiders. This panel will explore what Caribbean authors teach us about the varied perspectives on the communities and cultures of Caribbean nations harbored by non-Caribbean peoples and Caribbean expatriates. Questions of economic privilege, gender, race, education, and politics will be examined. Please submit a well written 250-word abstract via the Northeast Modern Language Association Convention submission button at the page for this panel.
