ASLE 2019 CALL FOR PAPERS
Submissions period October 15 – December 15, 2018

Panel:

Rewriting Paradise: Caribbean Literary Ecologies

Organizer: Elaine Savory (savory@sisna.com), New School University

Planned Format: Traditional Panel (4 Presenters)

Capitalist exploitation of people and place has been particularly historically brutal in the Caribbean, which makes the current selling of the region as a tourist fantasyland especially bitterly ironic. This panel will consider ways in which Caribbean literature has sought to explore and represent the relation between

people and place in an ecological frame. It is hoped that tensions, fractures and dialogue between reality and fantasy, human and non-human, global and local, colonial, anticolonial and decolonial might be discussed with reference to particular theory and to literary texts.
