The Caribbean Woman Writer as Scholar: Creating, Imagining, Theorizing (September 2009), edited by Keshia N. Abraham, with a preface by Carol Boyce Davies, is a new title by the Caribbean Studies Press.
This 462-page collection of essays constitutes the first volume in The Caribbean / African Diaspora Series. This collection of provocative essays addresses questions such as “What does it mean to be a Caribbean woman writer?”, “Shall I write about being from the Caribbean or about being a woman?”, and “In what ways am I to differentiate being a writer from being a scholar?” Contributors such as Erna Brodber, Myriam Chancy, Carol Boyce Davies, Elizabeth DeLoughrey, Shirley Toland Dix, Linda Rodriguez-Gugliemoni, and Sylvia Wynter explore these and other questions from a variety of perspectives and literary approaches.
