Caribbean poets, dramatists, and novelists have created a complex portrait of the Islands' cultures and characters. Certainly many of these characters' and cultures' traits resonate with those in other areas of the world. But what are some of the distinctive characteristics of Caribbean life in literatures of the Caribbean? How do historical, political, or folkloric legacies help us understand these distinctive traits? What are the liberatory implications of distinctly Caribbean characters, communities, environments, and folkloric motifs? Please submit 200-word abstracts through your new or previous Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) user account by going to https://www.buffalo.edu/nemla.html and following the links.
