CfP: Religion, Resistance and Gender in Caribbean Cultural Production (literature, film, music)
[A post by Peter Jordens]
Essays are sought for an edited collection titled Religion, Resistance and Gender in Caribbean Cultural Production. The collection aims to add to the understanding of the Caribbean region by studying the connection between religion, resistance and gender in Caribbean literature, film and music. In particular, the collection will develop dialogue on Caribbean literature by and about women and will examine how creative expression functions as a form of subversion.
The essays should examine how cultural production captures the multifaceted social, cultural and political life of the Caribbean region. Overall, the project will reflect upon how Caribbean cultural production presents alternative histories and disputes an idyllic view of the region. The goal of the volume is to bring together interdisciplinary research to illustrate the vibrancy of Caribbean women’s writing and the intersectionality inherent in Caribbean creative expression.
