The JWIL editorial team is very pleased to announce that we have welcomed aboard a new member of the collective – Dr. Ronald Cummings. Dr. Cummings is Associate Professor in the Department of English Language and Literatures at Brock University, Canada. His research focuses on critical Maroon studies, gender and sexuality studies and on Caribbean literary historiography. He is co-editor (with Alison Donnell) of Caribbean Literature in Transition, 1970-2020 (Cambridge University Press, 2021). We are thrilled to have his expertise and commitment to Caribbean studies be a part of our collective work.
